Moreover, the fiefs dependent on the Gascon duchy had fallen away with the attenuation of the duke's domain.
The rapidity of the action diminished with the attenuation of the vapour.
The occupant of the bed appears almost in a sitting position, propped up by pillows, marble pale, and thin to attenuation.
It is to be given at the first attenuation three times daily in half gr.
The heat is at this time generally 75°, if it was pitched at 65°; for the heat and the attenuation go hand in hand.
She quite lacks the refinement, attenuation and imponderability you have achieved.
The symptoms here compiled were produced by the 3x attenuation and the tincture, using from one drop to thirty drops at a dose.
The secret of attenuation had thus become an open one to Pasteur.
Myers believes that in nearly every instance mutism follows stupor and is merely an attenuation of the latter process.
The rush had quickened when she met his groan with an attenuation.
attenuation at·ten·u·a·tion (ə-těn'yōō-ā'shən)
A dilution, thinning, or weakening of a substance, especially a reduction in the virulence of a pathogen through repeated inoculation, growth in a different culture medium, or exposure to heat, light, air or other weakening agents.
The energy loss of an ultrasonic beam as it passes through a material.
The progressive reduction in amplitude of a signal as it travels farther from the point of origin.
For example, an electric signal's amplitude reduces with distance due to electrical impedance. Attenuation is usually measured in decibels [per metre?].
Attenuation does not imply appreciable modification of the shape of the waveform (distortion), though as the signal amplitude falls the signal-to-noise ratio will also fall unless the channel itself is noise free or the signal is amplified at some intermediate point(s) along the channel.
