In science:

In this section we have seen that every iterative generator can be viewed as a cascade counter-assisted generator (in a degenerate manner).
Guaranteeing the diversity of number generators
Side cut view (top) and Cut view in perspective (bottom) of the RICH counter showing the radiator plane at the top separated from the photodetector plane by the (photon) drift space (ring expansion gap).
The RICH counter of the AMS experiment
Wilson loop is viewed as a counter of topological linking with the random clusters.
Confinement-deconfinement and universal string effects from random percolation
This is not, of course, a counter-intuitive result in view of the polynomial three-term recursion in Eq.(76) obeyed by (closely related to P (N, n)) peak numbers P (n + 1, m) .
Random walk generated by random permutations of {1,2,3, ..., n+1}
One can view the counter as a container into which marked coins are added or taken out.
Generalized Counters and Reversal Complexity
From an observational point of view, the two cases can be distinguished in principle by considering the position of the counter-image.
On aberration in gravitational lensing
Although this counter term seems apparently ‘strange’, such a modification of the Dirac operator is quite natural from the point of view of torsion which we are discussing here.
Generalized Killing-Yano equations in D=5 gauged supergravity
Some results presented in this paper can be viewed as counter-parts of the results in for a source rather than channel setting.

The Cherenkov Correlated Timing Detector: Beam Test Results from Quartz and Acrylic Bars
These telescopes typically consist of charged particle detectors (scintillators or resistive plate counters) spread out on a grid and often covered by a lead layer to convert the photons in the shower, or water Cherenkov detectors in which a large tank of water is viewed by a number of fast PMTs.
