1 photoluminescence spectrometer for measuring the photoluminescence of solids and liquids in a standard cuvette with an optical path length of 1 x 1 cm (all measurement setups must include a holder for a standard cuvette with an optical path length of 1 x 1 cm).
For each test, quantitative measurements of CoP path length, CoP path average speed, medio - lateral ([DELTA]X) and anterior - posterior sway amplitude ([DELTA]Y) were assessed (23).
In the rotation maneuvers, the magnitude of rotation angles is defined as a path length, and the shortest path can be obtained by the eigen-axis rotation [8-14].
The small-world network is characterized by a higher cluster coefficient compared to a random network and a shorter path length compared to a regular network, which allows for more efficient information transfer among distant brain regions.
[13] put forward an interbank network based on interbank credit lending relationships and it generates some network features including a low clustering coefficient, a relatively short average path length, a community structure, and a two-power-law distribution of degree.
The effective path length of gas in the beam path is described by the Lambert-Beer law [21],
Current approaches for the rapid identification of trace gases can be limited in path length for analyzing a sample when space and weight are critical, such as when an IR spectrometer is deployed as a handheld device or on an aircraft or spacecraft.
The meter is equipped with an integrated light shield and a flexible path length and cell choice (plastic or glass) for flexibility of application.
In link embedding stage, a path fitness function is developed to find the best path in which available bandwidth, CPU and path length are considered.
The scalar field of 5D gravity, which has been recently related to the Higgs field of 4D particle physics in[7], were theoretically shown to be capable of polarizing the space or vacuum [8-9] and thus able to extend the optical path length of a laser beam that travels through the polarized vacuum.
The change in the optical path length within the sensing system is coupled with muscle contraction and movements, which are the different forces of the muscle contraction and movement which occur and can be measured.
Most of the measures that are based on the structure of the ontology are actually based on: path length/distance (shortest path length) between the two concept nodes, and depth of concept nodes in the ontology/is-a hierarchy tree, e.g.
