Attenuation

The process by which a compound is reduced in concentration over time, through absorption, adsorption, degradation, dilution, and/or transformation. an also be the decrease with distance of sight caused by attenuation of light by particulate pollution.

Attenuation

A loss measure for voltage, current or power (optical or electrical). The loss in optical power along an optical fibre is measured in dB/km, and should be quoted at a specified light wavelength. Beware when converting linear ratios to dB, which is a logarithmic ratio. The tables for voltages and currents are different from those referring to power. ...

Attenuation

Attenuation is the decrease in the strength of a signal over the length of a cabling channel and attenuation is caused by a loss of electrical energy in the resistance of the cabling channel and by leakage of energy from the channel. This loss of energy is expressed in decibels (dB). Lower attenuation values correspond to better channel performance. For example, when comparing the performance of two cables at a particular frequency, a channel with an attenuation of 10 dB performs better than a channel with an attenuation of 20 dB. (see page 45) Channel attenuation is determined by the channel and cross connect construction, length, and the frequencies of thesignals sent through the channel. At higher frequencies the skin effect and inductance and capacitance cause attenuation to increase. ...

Attenuation

Reduced virulence of a micro-organism, usually brought about by passage through a succession of abnormal hosts. or due to overgrowth of non-virulent strains in laboratory cultures. Attenuated strains are often used as vaccines. Also a process that plays a role in the regulation of enzymes involved in amino acid biosynthesis.

Attenuation

[brewing] In brewing, attenuation is the percentage that measures the conversion of sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide by the fermentation process. The percentage is calculated by comparing weight or specific gravity of the extract before and after fermentation. This formula works with extract given in weight percentages or degree Plato...

Attenuation

Is the reduction in amplitude and intensity of a signal with respect to distance traveled through a medium. Attenuation is usually measured in units of decibels per centimetre of medium (dB/cm) and is represented by the attenuation coefficient of the medium in question.

Attenuation

Attenuation is the reduction of a physical quantity, the opposite of amplification. Within acoustics and structural dynamics it is normally presented as the logarithm of input dividedby output.In electronics it is the the degree to which an input signal is reduced in amplitude at the output of a circuit or device. Attenuation is typically expressed...
