Provided such an electric potential difference is recorded via proper coincidence scheme (an additional detector junction involved), we may confirm that the geometric effect at the Josephson junction is a physical reality.
As the anode reference exchange current density [([j.sub.C3-Ox]).sup.0-ref] increased by four orders of magnitude (i.e., from 0.07 to 7 to 70[degrees] mA/[m.sup.2]), the potential difference between the fuel cell electrodes also increased (i.e., from 0.38 to 0.72 to 1.04 V, respectively).
Caption: Figure 3: The measured potential difference of 18 modules from the same module string between the ground and the pole of module under an open circuit.
The relative deviation of the potential difference in the second test did not exceed 2%.
According to Lagrange's multiplier verification, the spillover of R&D capital from OFDI obtains a threshold value,with the corresponding amount of 72.7 million USD, and the critical value of 1%, 5% and 10% significance test is 7.989, 5.212 and 4.627; the potential difference of OFDI R&D capital contains two threshold values, 11.278 and 18.567 ; the critical value of significance test reports 8.666, 3.871 and 1.617.
The essence of HBC operation is signal transmission by maintaining electric potential distribution in the vicinity of the human body, where receiving units detect the signal from potential difference between two points located on the surface of the body or very close to the body.
When the potential difference between the control signal, applied to the gate of the FET, and the input signal is beyond a certain threshold voltage, the FET acts like a closed switch and conducts the signal.
In four animals, the potential difference between the two skin sites was measured three times and continued for 4 days.
Nasal potential difference: a clinical diagnostic test for cystic fibrosis.
The experiment was repeated by changing the potential difference applied.
The proton detector, a CsI scintillator, is situated on top of the storage volume; the decay protons are accelerated and focused onto it through a potential difference in the storage volume and an additional focusing coil around the detector.
To demonstrate the potential difference in sheet quality, Figure 4 shows the image analysis of a sheet made on a twin-wire former using a double layer wire with an extra support strand.
