  • amplitudes
  • These universal long-distance functions can be measured with global fit to experiments and include parton distribution functions, fragmentation functions, multi-parton correlation functions, generalized parton distributions, generalized distribution amplitudes and many kinds of form factors.

  • biological
  • The benthic boundary layer (BBL) represents a few tens of meters of the water column directly above the sea floor and constitutes an important zone of biological activity in the ocean. (wikipedia.org)
  • parameter
  • 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)
  • Q factor is a parameter that describes the resonance behavior of an underdamped harmonic oscillator (resonator). (wikipedia.org)
  • By monitoring how the electrical resistance of the diamond changed, they could determine the g-factor, a parameter that will ultimately determine how well spin might be controlled by a magnetic field. (spectroscopynow.com)
  • physics
  • The Gaunt factor (or Kramers-Gaunt factor) is used as a multiplicative correction to the continuous absorption or emission results when calculated using classical physics techniques. (wikipedia.org)
  • In cases where classical physics provides a close approximation, the Gaunt factor can be set to 1.0. (wikipedia.org)
  • Now, writing in the journal Applied Physics Letters, Golrokh Akhgar, a physicist at La Trobe University in Australia and his colleagues explain how they have measured how strongly the spin property of a charge carrier in the carbon allotrope, diamond, interacts with a magnetic field.

  • science
  • A little-known aspect of the first series of nuclear tests carried out after the Second World War is explored by physicist and science communicator Michael Bücker, the fate of the captured warships used in the Baker test at the Bikini atoll in 1946. (ctbto.org)
  • Physicist Richard Feynman coined the term "cargo cult science" for cases in which researchers believe they are doing science because their activities have the outward appearance of it but actually lack the "kind of utter honesty" that allows their results to be rigorously evaluated. (wikipedia.org)
  • Over the next 3 decades, several hundred researchers, mainly in the discipline of education, have used the Chambers DAST to gauge various social, cultural and educational factors in student perception of science and the scientist. (wikipedia.org)
  • term
  • 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)
  • phase
  • However, this is not really important, because in computing the probabilities, we always take a square, thus such a phase factor is eliminated. (physicsforums.com)
  • In 1904 he was the first to note the existence of density fluctuations in the gas phase, and in 1908 he was the first physicist to ascribe the phenomenon of critical opalescence to large density fluctuations. (wikipedia.org)
