(Greek > Latin: electric, electricity; from amber, resembling amber, generated from amber which when rubbed vigorously [as by friction], produced the effect of static electricity)
Electronics in our lives consists of numerous tools
Equipment which we use everyday relies on electronics to function including calculators, car controls, cameras, washing machines, medical scanners, mobile telephones, radar systems, computers; as well as many other applications or devices which are listed in this unit.
One example is lead lanthanum zirconate titanate, a transparent ferroelectric ceramic whose optical properties can be changed by an electric field.
In lasers, such materials can be used for beam deflection, beam modulation, and Q switching (a switch that allows for the build-up of energy before it is switched open to allow light to move out).
One example is lead lanthanum zirconte titanate, a transparent ferroelectric ceramic whose optical properties can be changed by an electric field.
In lasers, such materials can be used for beam deflection, beam modulation, and Q switching (Quality switch or an optical valve in a laser that prevents light from transmitting outside the resonating cavity).
The Q switch allows for the build-up of energy before it is switched open to allow light to move out.
With a laser beam, modulating frequencies well into the gigahertz range are possible.
A Kerr cell is an optical device consisting of a transparent cell with two electrodes between two polarizing media which passes light only if the two planes of polarization are parallel and it is used as a high-speed shutter or to modulate a laser beam.
2. A branch of physics that functions with the influence and effects of an electric field on light going through the optical properties of matter; especially, in its crystalline form.
These properties include the transmission, emission, and the absorption of light.
The term electro-optics is used interchangeably with the broader term optoelectronics.
2. The movement of a conductive liquid through a membrane or across immobilized colloid particles under the influence of an electric current.
2. The migration, under the influence of an electric field, of the liquid phase of a colloidal solution toward an electrode.
2. A type of solion for converting voltage into fluid pressure, which uses depolarizing electrodes sealed in an electrolyte and which operates through the streaming potential effect.
A solion is an electrochemical device in which amplification is obtained by controlling and monitoring a reversible electrochemical reaction or a low-frequency amplifying device that operates by controlling the flow of ions in a solution; some types, such as, the micropump, accomplish this by means of an electro-osmotic pressure.
The process involves using negatively charged paint particles (anodic electropainting) or positively charged paint particles (cathodic electropainting).
The cleaned metal parts to be coated are immersed in a tank of electrodeposition paint, and the current is turned on, so that the paint particles are attracted by the positively charged paint particles.
