flu·ence (H),

(flū'ens),
A measure of the quantity of x-radiation in a beam in diagnostic radiology, either particle fluence, the number of photons passing an aperture of unit cross-sectional area, or energy fluence, the sum of the energies of the photons passing through a unit area. Compare: flux.

flu·ence

(flū'ĕns)
A measure of the quantity of x-radiation in a beam in diagnostic radiology, either particle fluence, the number of photons entering a sphere of unit cross-sectional area, or energy fluence, the sum of the energies of the photons passing through a unit area.

fluence

(floo′ĕns) [L. fluere, to flow]
In radiation oncology, the number of photons per unit area, measured in J/m2 (joules/square meter). Fluence is one of several modifiable factors in the treatment of diseased tissues with radiation.

Following closing, the merged company would be renamed Fluence Corporation Limited (Fluence).
I look forward to remaining a significant shareholder of Fluence and seeing the fulfillment of the legacy I set out to create in the water space by originally establishing RWL Water.
The decrease in the average surface roughness is also observed in 20 [micro]m PVDF samples irradiated with 75 MeV Oxygen-ion beam at different fluences and this decrease in the average surface roughness is depend on the fluence.
The laser energies in terms of applied fluence and number of pulses varied in different experiments so as to study their effects upon samples.
The worst complications, however, occurred in the 12th infant who received 595-nm pulsed dye laser therapy using fluences of 7-12 J/[cm.
More fluence would give a larger distance between hils.
The time-averaged neutron fluence from our proposed beamline at the SNS will be greater than that at any continuous neutron source in the United States.
These include the flexibility to select the wavelength - 585, 590, 595, or 600 nm - and the fluence that is most appropriate for each patient for effective treatment of veins and lesions of different sizes, shapes, locations, and depths.
5mm) will allow deeper penetration of the laser energy than smaller spot sizes at equal surface fluences.
It does so by delivering a combination of high fluences (50 J/cm2) and extremely long pulses (up to 20 msec) to damage large targets in the dermis--like hair and leg veins--while leaving the smaller surrounding structures unharmed.
These higher fluences offer an even more effective treatment with no long-term adverse effects.
