EPO-TEK® Glossary Of Terms

 

Radiation
The combined process of emission, transmission, and absorption of thermal energy between bodies separated by an empty space.
Radiometer
An instrument, distinct from a photometer, to measure power (Watts) of electromagnetic radiation.
Receiver
A terminal device that includes a detector and signal processing electronics. It functions as an optical-to-electrical converter.
Refractive Index
Gradient The change in refractive index with distance from the axis of an optical fiber.
Reliability
The continued conformance of a device or system to a specification over an extended period of time.
Residues
Contaminants left behind on the surface of the substrate or the PCB as a consequence of both preassembly and assembly operations.
Resin
An organic polymer which, when mixed with a curing agent, crosslinks to form a thermosetting plastic.
Resistance
The property of a material to oppose the flow of current.
Resistivity
The ability of a material to resist passage of electrical current either through its bulk or on a surface. The unit of volume resistivity is the ohm-cm, of surface resistivity, the ohm.
Rheology
The study of the change in the form and flow of matter, embracing elasticity, viscosity, and plasticity.
