The Varian software can also be used to Fourier transform the FID, and to display the output spectra.
Experimental Quantum Computation with Nuclear Spins in Liquid Solution
The free energy F may be computed with use made of (3.18) or (3.19). It is easier, however, to proceed from (B.1) upon defining s0(ρ) so that one shall arrive at the free energy of an ideal Bose gas Fid when a = 0 and fc = 0.

Conciliation of Bayes and Pointwise Quantum State Estimation: Asymptotic information bounds in quantum statistics
For two probability distributions P, bP on the same sample space, let p and bp be their densities with respect to a dominating measure µ and define the fidelity between these probability measures as Fid( bP, P ) = (cid:0)R bp 2 dµ(cid:1)2 .

To go beyond the present performance, a new generation of detectors has been conceived: the Full Inter-Digit (FID).
Latest results of the EDELWEISS-II experiment
In this new design, the interleaved electrodes cover also the lateral surfaces of the bolometers and they are connected such that surface event rejection is possible in both fiducial and guard volumes. A first series of two 400-g and four 800-g FID detectors has been built and tested (see picture in figure 6 (left)).
Latest results of the EDELWEISS-II experiment
The combination of an unprecedented mass of 800 g and the FID technology will significantly increase the fiducial mass of the detectors.
