microjoule

A unit that measures minimal electric energy, equal to one millionth of a joule. Most pacemakers have an output from 1 to 50 µJ.

It emits short laser pulses ranging from 0.4 to 20 picoseconds and has a peak power of 20 microjoules. This enables the laser to perform cold processing, meaning it performs the task before the material begins to register a thermal process.
epfl intends to acquire 2 laser amplifiers to complement the spectral range and repetition frequencies of our wyvern x kmlabs laser currently operating between 100 khz and 1 mhz with 4 to 16 microjoules per pulse.
The horizontal and vertical spot spacings were 5 and 10 microns, respectively, while the pulse energy was 4 microjoules.
When a pulse exceeded 17.5 microJoules, the membrane was irreversibly disrupted and the cell died.
For each function called in the application code, the eA Profiler reports the microjoules used and the function's proportion of overall power use."
Today's state-of-the-art UV lasers create pulses with energies in the tens of microJoules at PRFs of 100 kHz or higher.
Electrostatically actuated MEMS switches take only microjoules to operate, so we anticipate a three orders of magnitude reduction in the control power consumption (power to scan the antenna electronically) over conventional solid state, PIN diode switching, plus additional power savings from the improved microwave characteristics of the MEMS devices."
The results estimated a greater than 3-log inactivation at 100-300 microjoules per square centimeter (mJ/[cm.sup.2]), although these data cannot be gleaned from the published paper.
LCD displays measurement energies from tens of microjoules to 100 Joule, pulse widths up to 200 mS, and pulse rates up to 15 kHz depending on head setting.
The JenLas femto 16 features a pulse energy up to 80 microjoules, a free and quickly adjustable pulse repetition rate from 100 to 510 kilohertz, single shot ability, an internal SHG option (THG on request) and reliable operation at up to 35C ambient temperature.
