Oseridan, oserândan, from Yaghnobi oser- "to cool," Wakhi wəsər-/wəsərt "to fade, wither," related to Pers. sard "cold, cool" (Kurd. sar, Baluchi sârt, Ossetian sald "cold" ), afsordan, afsârdan "to congeal;" Mid.Pers. sard/sart "cold;" Av. sarəta- "cold;" cf. Skt. śiśira- "cold;" L. calidus "warm;" Lith. šaltas "cold;" Welsh clyd "warm;" PIE *keltos- "cool."
Fr.: fréquence de découpage
The frequency at which an oscillation is intermittently quenched, as in a super-regenerative receiver.
Fr.: galaxie assechée
A galaxy in which star formation is turned off or suppressed by some physical processes. → star formation quenching.
Fr.: étouffement, découpage, étanchement, assèchement; trempe
1) The process of extinguishing, removing, or diminishing a physical property.
star formation quenching
osereš-e diseš-e setâregân
Fr.: assèchement de formation d'étoiles
The premature termination of star formation process in some galaxies. The ultimate quenching of star formation is caused by stripping of the gas reservoir which will finally turn into stars. A wide variety of mechanisms have been proposed to provide quenching. For example, → major mergers can transform spiral galaxies into ellipticals, and may also quench future star formation by ejecting the → interstellar medium from the galaxy via starburst, → active galactic nucleus, or shock-driven winds. In rich clusters, where merging is less efficient because of the large relative velocities of galaxies, rapid encounters or fly-bys may cause the formation of a bar and growth of a spheroidal component instead of larger scale star formation. Also, cold gas can be stripped out of the galaxy both by tidal forces and ram pressure in the intracluster medium. Similarly, the hot halo that provides future fuel for cooling and star formation may be efficiently stripped in dense environments, thus quenching further star formation (see, e.g., Kimm et al., 2009, MNRAS 394, 1131, arXiv:0810.2794).
