The higher overvoltage ratio (electron accelerating
voltage divided by x-ray excitation energy) is a favorable factor as far as intensity is concerned but is counteracted by lower fluorescence yield.
"During the rigorous NSF review process, the evaluation panel was impressed with Invistics' proven approach and application for accelerating

As these various damages take place, associated cracking that occurs allows more water to get in, further accelerating
the actions of water against the concrete.
Some professionals recommended not accelerating
the recovery method to 100%, because they believed a lower tax could be achieved by partially offsetting each years distribution by 10%.
Whatever the case, researchers should refrain from casting acceleration as a "horrible ogre" and should look at the drawbacks of not accelerating
intellectually gifted children, Tomlinson-Keasey contends.
