###### frac

- For example, if w is the average energy for a particle to produce a charge carrier in a detector, then the relative FWHM resolution for measuring the particle energy E is: R = F W H M μ = 2.35 F w E , {\displaystyle R={\frac {FWHM}{\mu }}=2.35{\sqrt {\frac {Fw}{E}}},} where the factor of 2.35 relates the standard deviation to the FWHM.

###### physics

- This is a complicated issue because there are a variety of factors that lead to there being fewer women than men in physics in Canada. (sfu.ca)
- The most common reaction we see is surprise at all of the different things that physicists study from biological physics to cosmology. (sfu.ca)
- In physics and engineering the quality factor or Q factor is a dimensionless parameter that describes how underdamped an oscillator or resonator is, and characterizes a resonator's bandwidth relative to its centre frequency. (wikipedia.org)

###### quality

- factors are more physicists in the quality decade. (bhhanson.com)
- Resonators with high quality factors have low damping, so that they ring or vibrate longer. (wikipedia.org)
- The quality factor of oscillators varies substantially from system to system, depending on their construction. (wikipedia.org)
- Clocks, lasers, and other resonating systems that need either strong resonance or high frequency stability have high quality factors. (wikipedia.org)
- Tuning forks have quality factors around 1000. (wikipedia.org)
- The quality factor of atomic clocks, superconducting RF cavities used in accelerators, and some high-Q lasers can reach as high as 1011 and higher. (wikipedia.org)
- The term was not intended as an abbreviation for "quality" or "quality factor", although these terms have grown to be associated with it. (wikipedia.org)

###### contribute

- The general public also generally doesn't know what physicists do or how we contribute to society. (sfu.ca)
- Some theoretical values are: Measuring the Fano factor is difficult because many factors contribute to the resolution, but some experimental values are: The Fano factor, along with the coefficient of variation, has been used in neuroscience to describe variability in recorded spike trains. (wikipedia.org)

###### high

- During high school or college, many aspiring physicists latch onto Feynman or Einstein or Hawking as representing all they hope to become. (discovermagazine.com)

###### loss

- In particle detectors, the Fano factor results from the energy loss in a collision not being purely statistical. (wikipedia.org)

###### time

- Hopefully, those observations will be corroborated over a long period of time as to what`s really a risk factor or not. (chicagotribune.com)
- If the time window is chosen to be infinity, the Fano factor is similar to the variance-to-mean ratio (VMR) which in statistics is also known as the index of dispersion. (wikipedia.org)
- Fano noise Index of dispersion - equivalent to the Fano factor for an infinite time window Ugo Fano Fano, U. (1947). (wikipedia.org)
