saturation,

of a solution: see solutionsolution,
in chemistry, homogeneous mixture of two or more substances. The dissolving medium is called the solvent, and the dissolved material is called the solute. A solution is distinct from a colloid or a suspension.

saturation,

of an organic compound, condition occurring when its molecules contain no double or triple bonds and thus cannot undergo addition reactions. For example, ethane (H3C-CH3) is a saturated compound. A compound is called unsaturated if it can undergo addition reactions. In the unsaturated compound ethene (H2C=CH2), the carbon-carbon double bond readily reacts, e.g., with hydrogen to form ethane.

Saturation

The purity of a hue; the higher the saturation, the purer the color.

saturation

[‚sach·ə′rā·shən]
(electronics)
The condition that occurs when a transistor is driven so that it becomes biased in the forward direction (the collector becomes positive with respect to the base, for example, in a pnp type of transistor).
(electromagnetism)
(meteorology)
The maximum water vapor per unit volume that a parcel of air can contain at a given temperature.
(nucleonics)
The condition in which the decay rate of a given radionuclide is equal to its rate of production in an induced nuclear reaction.
The condition in which the voltage applied to an ionization chamber is high enough to collect all the ions formed by radiation but not high enough to produce ionization by collision.
(optics)
(ordnance)
The striking of a target area with such numbers of missiles that no place in it remains untouched by destruction.
(physics)
The condition in which a further increase in some cause produces no further increase in the resultant effect.
The property exhibited by certain forces between particles wherein each particle can interact strongly with only a limited number of other particles, as in the forces between atoms in a molecule, and between nucleons in a nucleus.
(physical chemistry)
The condition in which the partial pressure of any fluid constituent is equal to its maximum possible partial pressure under the existing environmental conditions, such that any increase in the amount of that constituent will initiate within it a change to a more condensed state.

saturation

1. The condition under which air at a given temperature and pressure holds the maximum amount of water vapor without causing precipitation.
2. The degree of purity of a color. A color is said to be saturated when it contains no white.

saturation

The condition of the atmosphere when the actual water vapor present in the air is the maximum the air can hold at the prevailing temperature (i.e., the relative humidity is 100%).

saturation

1. Chem the state of a chemical compound, solution, or vapour when it is saturated
2. Meteorol the state of the atmosphere when it can hold no more water vapour at its particular temperature and pressure, the relative humidity then being 100 per cent
3. the attribute of a colour that enables an observer to judge its proportion of pure chromatic colour
4. Physics the state of a ferromagnetic material in which it is fully magnetized. The magnetic domains are then all fully aligned
5. Electronics the state of a valve or semiconductor device that is carrying the maximum current of which it is capable and is therefore unresponsive to further increases of input signal
6. the level beyond which demand for a product or service is not expected to increase

saturation

(1) On magnetic media, a condition in which the magnetizable particles are completely aligned and a more powerful writing signal will not improve the reading back.

(2) In a bipolar transistor, a condition in which the current on the gate (the trigger) is equal to or greater than what is necessary to close the switch.

(3) In a diode, a condition in which the diode is fully conducting.

(4) In a color, the amount of pure pigment it contains. For example, a fully saturated red would be pure red. The less saturated, the more pastel the appearance. See HSB, HSL, chroma, luminance and hue.

In addition, AUO's 55-inch 4K Ultra HD LCD TV panel is equipped with Wide Colour Gamut (WCG) technology for colour saturation as high as NTSC 96% and features a 4K resolution of 3840x2160.
It also includes a new back light correction feature that automatically enhances and corrects the brightness, sharpness, colour saturation and colour balance of the image.
At Holography 2000, they proved that seeing is believing as 140 seasoned holographers made a collective, awed, intake of breath when the Gentet's showed their colour holograms; an effective demonstration of their characteristics of colour saturation in high resolution reflection holograms to a degree never seen before.
The captured images also exhibit strong noise even when shot in brightly lit conditions along with low levels of colour saturation. Image details were further lost when images were taken indoors and in low-light conditions, and an overall loss of sharpness in the field was observed, with the outer edges of images being softened.
The X1's display has excellent colour saturation with details and with good viewing angles.
Due to Acer ColorBoost II+, the S1370Whn reproduces images with more natural and balanced shades, while it achieves a wider colour gamut via Acer SpectraBoost, a color-wheel coating technology that boosts colour saturation. ColorSafe II ensures colour fidelity even after prolonged use.
We're ahead by a wide margin in critical categories such as brightness, colour saturation and video speed," Nature quoted developer Jason Heikenfeld, assistant professor of electrical engineering in UC's College of Engineering, as saying.
The colour saturation however remains more or less the same with the images taken by OnePlus 5T coming out slightly warmer.
The most notable change arriving with this new update is the option to change colour saturation of the display on Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.
Here the iPhone 7 Plus takes the lead once again with almost true to source colour saturation. However, since the secondary camera on the iPhone has f/2.8 aperture, the photo is not as bright as compared to the ones clicked by the other three phones.
The Cloud Swift has a decent display though, and the 720p IPS LCD panel provides decent colour saturation along with good viewing angles.
