The mobilization of the remaining amorphous phase at higher temperature (between 140 and 200[degrees]C in the investigated frequency range) is evident as a broad shoulder above the glass transition loss peak.
In addition, since the transition loss is essentially flat with frequency, the steepness of the band edges and very high stop-band rejection achievable with waveguide filters remain intact.
The value of the taxpayer's formerly exempt bond would fall, and the taxpayer would suffer a transition loss. Likewise, when the tax exemption was first enacted, the lucky or clever taxpayers who happened to have purchased their bonds prior to the passage of the exemption would enjoy transition gains.
If Congress were to repeal an incentive tax credit without providing transition relief (either in the form of a grandfathered effective date for an installment credit or in the form of a nominally prospective effective date for an up-front credit) taxpayers who invested in reliance on the credit would suffer a transition loss. That possibility gives rise to the main point of this section: Because taxpayers who relied on the repealed incentive credit were "burned" by the government, future incentive credits would have to be more generous (for example, the credit percentage would have to be greater) to achieve the same amount of increased investment in the targeted asset or activity.
The alternative, however, of using nontransferable grandfathering could result in a transition loss to the taxpayers holding the assets at the time of transition.
Figure 7 summarizes the contrasting trends in magnitude of the glass transition and [beta] transition loss tangent peaks with increasing cure extent.
Thus, the module transition loss is about 0.6 dB to a point on the substrate where the MMIC amplifier is placed on the antenna end of the module.
Its input voltage range of 3V to 24V enables it to operate from a variety of power sources, and its patented boundary mode control scheme minimizes transition losses and reduces transformer size.
Those transition losses are associated with initial effects that increase the wage gap (above A in Figure 1) before eventually falling to C.
In analyzing the accounting treatment for deferred pension related amounts accompanying a curtailment, the off-balance sheet deferred prior service costs and delayed transition losses from curtailment are recognized immediately.
The amplifier exhibits a peak gain of 12.5 dB from 153 to 155 GHz, corrected for the transition losses, and demonstrates greater than 10 dB gain from 151 to 156 GHz with input and output return losses of better than 5 dB and better than 10 dB, respectively.
