Meaning of thermalization in English:



(also British thermalisation)

See thermalize

‘The collisional thermalization between electrons and ions is very slow, due to the large difference in their masses, and it occurs on a millisecond timescale.’
  • ‘The magnitude of the observed anisotropic flow effect is sensitive to the degree of thermalization at the collision's earliest moments.’
  • ‘The horizon size predicted by the existing Big Bang model is too small to account for the observed isotropy in the cosmic microwave background to have evolved naturally by thermalization.’
  • ‘This breakup is a fast event (usually occurring during thermalization or at the beginning of the productive simulation phase) but also a rare event.’
  • ‘The simulation consists of thermalization, equilibration, and production phases.’
