(civil engineering)
A point of intersection of roads or highways, especially where one terminates.
(electricity)
(electronics)
A region of transition between two different semiconducting regions in a semiconductor device, such as a pn junction, or between a metal and a semiconductor.
(electromagnetism)
A fitting used to join a branch waveguide at an angle to a main waveguide, as in a tee junction. Also known as waveguide junction.

junction

The point at which two elements make contact. In a transistor, a junction is the point where an N-type material makes contact with a P-type material.

The EKG showed sinus bradyarrhythmia, 45-60 bpm, QRS axis at -45 degrees, left anterior fascicular block, an atrial extrasystole with incomplete compensatory postextrasystolic pause, three isolated premature QRS complexes with a right bundle branch block morphology, with rsR' aspect in V1, but with normal QRS duration (0.08 sec), which could have been either junctional extrasystole with aberrant intraventricular conduction or ventricular extrasystole with the origin in the proximal portion of the interventricular septum, with compensatory pauses.
