Its plug-and-play nature allows users to dial in primary and redundant path lengths on initial setup.
For example, to achieve the attitude ([psi],0,0) in a 3-2-1 Euler angle sense where the path length is [L.sub.3-2-1] = [psi], the sequential rotation angles, the path lengths, and the path length differences compared to those of the principal angle rotation under the normal condition are presented as
Regular interferometers separate light waves onto paths of different lengths and then recombine them, creating an interference pattern of alternating bright and dark fringes that moves whenever the path lengths change.
The path length and global efficiency of a node implies how close it is connected globally and how efficiency it transfer information globally to other nodes of the network, with shorter path lengths or higher global efficiency reflecting higher levels of information transfering efficiency.
The data of cost values and planned path lengths are used for the realization of t-test.
[17] However, in SZ communication between specific brain regions have longer path lengths than in healthy controls, suggesting a reduced capacity to communicate with other brain regions and, thus, a less strongly integrated global network.
AC value for the laser beams was calculated at 0.532,1.3, and 10.6 microns and for 11,100, and 200 km propagation path lengths. Calculations were done for three laser beam emission angles, that is, 30, 60, and 90 degrees.
It could be observed that there is gradual increase of gaseous attenuation from path length window 100-150 km and got to the peak at exactly longer path lengths of 150 km before attaining a saturation state at longer path lengths greater than 150 km.
Probing the same spectral line in both cells, a large amplitude difference of the two spectral features due to the different path lengths can be compensated for by means of different gas pressures in both cells.
