electronic mail (e-mail)

a form of COMMUNICATION which involves sending COMPUTER-originated messages and information across a telecommunications network. E-mail usage is expanding rapidly, partly reflected in the introduction of new facilities which provide an integrated approach to sending messages to any combination of fax, telex and electronic mail addresses. See INFORMATION MANAGEMENT, NETWORKING.

The Business Combination Agreement prescribes that, in preparation for the Business Combination, Tokyo Electron shall incorporate, as wholly owned subsidiaries of Tokyo Electron, (1) a company formed under the laws of the Netherlands that will become the parent company of the Companies after the Business Combination ( HoldCo ) and (2) a company formed under the laws of Japan that will be the surviving subsidiary company of HoldCo (the Tokyo Electron Merger Sub ) in a triangular merger in which Tokyo Electron will be the dissolving company (the Tokyo Electron Merger ).
Roughly speaking, an electron from an exciton strikes au electron bound to an atom, creating another exciton.
Advances in microbiology and electrode technology leading to higher rates of electron transfer could improve power density; bacteria could be engineered for better electron transfer.
Electron backscattering effects, serious sources of systematic uncertainty in [beta]-spectroscopy, are effectively suppressed.
Subsequently, the cells on the coverslips were sputter coated with gold (thickness of 10 nm) and viewed under the XL30 Field Emission Gun scanning electron microscope (FEI Company, Enidhoven, the Netherlands) at 10 kV.
The lighter (white) areas represent BIIR which has scissioned under electron bombardment and evaporated in the TEM's high vacuum.
e]), the neutron beam polarization P, the electron velocity v/c and the experimental asymmetry X are measured or determined with a relative uncertainty better than [10.
Both rely on a regular supply of a toxic electron shuttle, which gets used up as it acts in the cathode.
v] are the outgoing electron and neutrino momenta, [[sigma].
Those applications are: i) maximizing the electron beam quality from a radiofrequency photocathode for its application in the SLAC X-ray laser facility currently under development, the first of its kind in the world; ii) accurately modeling electron beam loss in the SLAC SPEAR3 electron storage ring with a goal to further increase efficiency at the synchrotron X-ray laboratory; and iii) optimizing local electron orbit correction in an electron storage ring for enhanced, robust control.
