For instance, to achieve the best energy gain, the electrons have to hit the terahertz field exactly during its accelerating half cycle, explained Zhang.
In 2017, it reduced its half cycle cost by 10% yoy to $14.6/boe.
The op-amp output turns out to be positive only during the positive half cycle of the input waveform, which eventually makes the diode D1 forward biased and the positive halfcycle waveform appears across the output terminal [30].
We shall derive the equations for the positive half cycle of the grid voltage.

The DPs that were generated in an underground cable where several cuts were made to model the measurements that are shown in Figure 5 have the characteristic that the DPs arise both in the positive half cycle and in the negative half cycle and have a great magnitude greater than 100 pC.
A biological indicator is placed in each of these locations and tested separately after the half cycle. This worst-case tray may even be considered a master product, which does not just contain devices for one surgical procedure but many complex devices from many types of surgical procedures.
A reduced requalification was generally a single half cycle to verify the process still delivered an SAL of 10-6.
HIF model of Figure 5 including a nonlinear resistance two diodes and two DC sources with amplitudes which change in every half cycle randomly has been presented in 2004.
In the interfacial polarization mechanism, only charge carriers with high drift velocity got enough time to pile up at the interfaces in each half cycle of alternating electric field.
For ideal piston flows, if the required ACH is infinitely high and the air supply and exhaust locations can be exchanged at the end of each half hour, the CO ppm rise distribution in the first half hour would be the same as that in Figure 1 and it would be reversed in the second half hour, as shown in Figure 1 Half hour half cycle or 1 h a full cycle chosen here corresponds to the half hour and 1 h CO ppm rise criteria in the Australian standard AS 1668.2.
