    • n cis A genus of xylophagous coleopterous insects, giving name to a family Cioidæ or Cisidæ. Some are minute beetles which infest the various species of Boleti or mushrooms. The larvæ of others do much harm to books, furniture, wood of houses, etc., by piercing them with small holes. Those which perforate books are popularly known as book-worms.
    • n cis A prefix of Latin origin, signifying ‘on this side of,’ forming adjectives with names of rivers, mountains, etc. In compounds of Roman origin Rome was considered as the point of departure, as in cisalpine, etc.; in modern formations the point of departure varies with the circumstances, as cisatlantic, on this side (whether American or European) of the Atlantic. Opposed to trans- (which see).
    • n cis An abbreviation (in cis θ) for (cos θ + i sin θ): in function theory: as, x = ξ + i η = ρ (cos θ + i sin θ) = ρ cis θ.

Figure  shows the inter-pixel capacitance as a function of applied bias voltage, as measured on Array  from two Structure  devices on a CiS wafer and one on a Seiko wafer.
Capacitance of Silicon Pixels
Measurements from two devices from a CiS wafer and one representative one from a Seiko wafer are shown.
Capacitance of Silicon Pixels
Figure  shows the  MHz inter-pixel capacitance of two representative CiS devices as a function of voltage, both before and shortly after irradiation (i.e., after bene(cid:12)cial annealing but before signi(cid:12)cant onset of reverse annealing).
Capacitance of Silicon Pixels
While the data for all the p-stop designs in CiS structures are well described by a single parameterization (for either a straight line or Equation ()), the Seiko structures show two groupings.
Capacitance of Silicon Pixels
The common and combined p-stop designs form one group whose capacitances are lower than those of the CiS structures.

Consistency of the jackknife-after-bootstrap variance estimator for the bootstrap quantiles of a studentized statistic
These results are particularly important because of the extensive use of bootstrap quantiles in various bootstrap CIs, whose coverage accuracy critically depends on the accuracy of the quantile estimators, especially in the dependent case.
