Free Carrier

In international commerce, an agreement between a seller and a buyer indicating that the seller has fulfilled his/her obligation to deliver a good when he/she has transferred it to the port, airport, or other place from which it will be transported. All cost and risk transfers to the buyer when the good is delivered to this agreed-upon place. The buyer designates the place to which the seller must deliver the good.

In the EBG structure design discussed above, a simplified model that assumes no free carrier lateral diffusion was used.
The free carrier density and the trap density are calculated to be about 1.78 x 1[0.sub.23] to 2.04 x [10.sup.23] [m.sup.-23] and 6.93 x [10.sup.23] to 15.9 x [10.sup.23] [m.sup.-3], respectively, for different thicknesses.
At low applied voltages (V, [V.sub.tr]), J-V characteristics followed the ohm's law, which implies that the density of thermally generated free carriers ([n.sub.0]) inside the films is larger than the injected carriers [32].
The FTO coated glass reaches a higher temperature than the uncoated glass of the same thickness across all NIR intensities due to the enhanced absorption of the FTO layer in the NIR region (due to a larger concentration of free carriers).
Finally, in the wavelength interval 1240-2500 nm, the main origin of the absorption is the free carrier absorption.
where [[omega].sup.n.sub.pn] = [e.sup.2][N.sub.n] / [m.sup.*.sub.n][[epsilon].sub.O][[epsilon].sup.p-Ge.sub.k] is the plasma angular frequency, [[omega].sub.cn] = e[B.sub.0] / [m.sup.*.sub.n] is the cyclotron resonance angular frequency, [v.sub.n] = e / [[mu].sub.n][m.sup.*.sub.n] is the free carriers average collision frequency, [omega] is the angular operating frequency [7].
Although the TPA in silicon in the wavelength range around 1.55 [micro]m is relatively small as compared to III-V compounds, the TPA induced free carrier can introduce significant optical absorption, which is proportional to the free carrier density.
In the meantime, the control system directs empty Power & Free carrier sets through a section paralleling the sorting buffer and the dip tanks.
Terms like DAF (delivered at frontier) or FCA (free carrier), among others, ensure that delivery of the freight takes place on the U.S.

02-2016, no duties and taxes will be collected on all importations with a free-on-board or free carrier value of P10,000 and below.
