• current
  • Specifically, in one embodiment, the first contacting region has a first layered section abutting the first electrode which is highly conductive to radial current flow and at least a second layered section between the first layered section and the active region which is more resistive to axial current flow than to radial current flow in the first layered section. (google.com)
  • In a further embodiment, one of the two contacting regions includes a layered section which is radially graded in resistivity so as to restrict the current injection to a radius less than that of the resonant cavity, thereby improving device efficiency and preferentially supporting single mode operation. (google.com)
  • a nonlinear increasing resistivity profile in at least one of said contacting regions between at least one of said first or second electrodes and said active region where said increasing resistivity is such that the resistivity adjacent to said active region is at least one order of magnitude greater that the resistivity in contact with said first or second electrode to minimize current crowding at perimeter edges of said active region. (google.com)
  • at least a second layered section between said first layered section and said active region, said second layered section being more resistive to longitudinal current flow than to radial current flow in said first layered section. (google.com)
  • means for forming a radially graded resistivity profile so as to restrict the current injection to a smaller radius than the optical mode, thereby enhancing the gain of the fundamental optical mode of the resonant cavity and thus improving device efficiency. (google.com)
  • However at high frequencies, alternating current (AC) does not penetrate deeply into conductors due to eddy currents induced in the material, it tends flow near the surface. (wikipedia.org)
  • Therefore in a solid conductor like a wire, current tends to flow in a layer or annulus at the surface, and less current flows through the material near the center of the wire. (wikipedia.org)
  • In two wires running parallel next to each other, with the same alternating current flowing in both wires, the magnetic field of the adjacent wire induces longitudinal eddy currents in the wire which causes the current to be concentrated in a narrow strip on the side adjacent to the other wire.

  • Generally
  • As pointed out by Ellis (2001) and Minton (2000) crowding by macromolecules has both thermodynamic and kinetic effects on the properties of other macromolecules that are not generally appreciated (Minton 2000, Ellis 2001). (google.com)
  • Peak crowding and off-peak demand Generally lengthening of existing maximum formations is impracticable for a number of reasons, though the Intercity Express Programme (IEP) will provide an opportunity for greater capacity. (wikipedia.org)
  • system
  • It is more intuitive to estimate ED crowding via a "traffic light system" model that employs only three statuses to determine: (1) green (ED at normal functional status), (2) yellow (ED at alert status), and (3) red (ED approaching and/or existing in a dysfunctional status) [ 12 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • Therefore, it's imperative to first examine which factors within the institution contribute to crowding and then maximize efficiency within this system before addressing physical space limitations. (westjem.com)
  • For such application, many analysis methods of system voltage stability determination have been developed on static analysis techniques based on the power flow model, since these techniques are simple, fast, and convenient to use. (hindawi.com)

  • time
  • Introduction One of the factors contributing to ED crowding is the lengthy delay in transferring an admitted patient from the ED to an inpatient department (ie, boarding time). (bmj.com)

  • It is important to accurately determine ED overcrowding thereby providing administrators' meaningful tools to properly manage ED flow. (hindawi.com)
  • activity
  • The first group of countries has experienced the predominance of financial investment oriented to speculation over productive activity, and the crowding-out of domestic savings by external savings. (repec.org)
  • Compounding the problem, human activity, in some cases, polluted the waters that flowed into the remaining wetlands. (wikipedia.org)
