One thousandth of a volt.

millivolt

A thousandth of a volt, a unit of measure for low voltage levels which forms the basis for measuring intrinsic P and R waves on EKG/ECG.

One thousandth of a volt.

millivolt

One thousandth of a volt. Electrophysiological processes mainly operate in the millivolt range, usually below 100 millivolts.

The MLV Series provides a high output signal at a low operating voltage, while maintaining comparable output levels to traditional equivalent compensated millivolt sensors operating at higher voltages.
A millivolt level input of either fast regular haversine pulses simulating tachycardia or narrowband noise to represent fibrillation is applied across the sense inputs of the ICD.
A study last year from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) found that plants generate a voltage of up to 200 millivolts when one electrode is placed in a plant and the other in the surrounding soil.
Unit generates a millivolt output as a function of target temperature in non-linear fashion.
The applied voltage in the range of tens of volts to several kilovolts must be applicable with stability in the order of several millivolts. This stability, coupled with low voltage noise, will allow for an exact definition of the ion position critical to the realization of optical interferometric ion fluorescence experiments.
Thermopile detectors are passive radiation sensing devices that require no bias or cooling, and generate an output in the range of microvolts to millivolts. The voltage produced is proportional to the temperature gradient between junctions and, unlike pyroelectric detectors, thermopiles are very low-noise devices, generating no 1/f or microphonic noise.
To meet the need for more insight on faster signals, the 6 Series MSO incorporates a new low-noise preamplifier ASIC that lowers noise, especially on signals that are in the hundreds of millivolts peak-to-peak.
Several new updates to the integrated web utility have been added, including the ability to calibrate by millivolts per volt.
Current rules state that an FM translator rebroadcasting an AM station must belocated such that the 60 dBo contour of the FM translator station is contained within the lesser of the 2 millivolts per meter (mV/m) daytime contour of the AM station, or within a 25-mile radius centered at the AM transmitter site.
Brain neurons fire at about 70 millivolts, and I have seen metals in the mouth generate over 900 millivolts!
