are shown some typical transmission curves for various absorbing glasses. The degree to which it is necessary for the absorbing screen to have a spectral transmission independent of the wave - length depends on the monochromatism of the filter glass. It is evident that if the red filter glass is absolutely monochromatic any absorbing glass will be satisfactory. If it transmits ...

Schematic plot of a two-dimensional potential surface for D + H: restricted by an absorbing potential (shaded area). The absorbing potential \Vt(R. r) (shaded region) rises gently outward towards the edges of the grid. In practice, the grid needs to be extended only by ~0.5-1 A, or less for heavier mass systems. The absorbing potential imposes the correct boundary condition on the wavefunction in the inner region.

Because the diode temperature sensor, the support legs, the horizontal addressing line, and the vertical signal line have to be placed on the same level, only a small fraction of the area can be allocated to the freestanding effective IR- absorbing area if a single-level structure is employed. In order to overcome this problem, Ishikawa et al. Diode Temp. Sensor Support Leg IR Absorbing Structure (b) Support Leg Support Leg Reflector Buried Oxide Diode Temp. Sensor (a) Fig.

An absorbing state in a simple population model is the zero state, with the population extinct, assuming no immigration occurs. In a Markov chain with an absorbing state, properties of interest include how long it takes to be absorbed ( e.g., finding the distribution of time to extinction), and what the distribution of states are in the case that extinction has not yet occurred. Under very general circumstances, it is possible to determine both of these for a Markov chain, as well as to find the ...
