Definitions for "Fid"
A square bar of wood or iron, used to support the topmast, being passed through a hole or mortise at its heel, and resting on the trestle trees.
A wooden or metal bar or pin, used to support or steady anything.
A pin of hard wood, tapering to a point, used to open the strands of a rope in splicing.
flame ionization detector. gas chromatographys detector based on measurement of ion current in a flame. Sensitive and rugged but destructive to sample.
Flame Ionization Detector. A very sensitive and stable detector for GC separations of organic compounds (see gas chromatograph). It gives no response to many inorganic gases (e.g., CO O, CO, SO S, and NH).
Flame Ionization Detector. An air monitoring instrument that utilizes the principle of hydrogen flame ionization for detection and measurement of organic vapors.
Free induction decay. To obtain a spectrum on an NMR spectrometer after having applied pulses to a sample, one measures the decaying planar magnetization induced by the nuclear spins as they precess. The - and -components and of the magnetization as a function of time are combined to form a complex signal . The record of over time is called the FID, which is Fourier-transformed to yield the spectrum.
FREE INDUCTION DECAY. if transverse magnetization of the spins is produced, e.g., by a 90É RF pulse, a transient MR signal at the Larmor frequency results that decays toward zero with a characteristic time constant of T2*. This decaying signal is the FID.
field induction drain
Abbreviation for Financial Institutions Duty. Is currently .06% (NSW/VIC) and applies to amounts deposited. There is a max charge of $1200..
Financial Institutions Duty. A State Government charge on inflows into financial institutions.
Financial Institutions Duty. State government duty.
Keywords:  isocentre, gantry, centre, focus, scan
Focus to Isocentre Distance. Distance from x-ray tube focus to the scan isocentre (the centre of rotation of the CT gantry).
Abbreviation for the Fixed Income Division at Morgan Stanley.
Foreign Income Dividends. Income paid from overseas earnings on which tax is treated as paid but on which there is no tax credit, therefore no tax may be reclaimed.

Facility identification number assigned by the U.S. EPA to track sites that are potential sources of contamination.
Film identification Number.
Facility identification number; the number of the facility or water system for the well.
Keywords:  maxfid, pick, zero, logical, disk
Contraction for frame-id, the logical address of a frame. The number of frames on a Pick computer is a function of how much disk is present. Each frame is given a unique number between 0 (zero) and maxfid, the "last" addressable frame.
A block of wood used in mounting and dismounting heavy guns.
Keywords:  lobe, suffix, projection
(suffix) Lobe-like projection.
Keywords:  descriptor, identifier, file
File Identifier Descriptor
Keywords:  profiles, survey, interval, maps, film
Timing mark on a survey record. Originally these were timing marks on a profile or film; now the term is generally used to describe 1-second interval timing records in digital data, and on maps or profiles.
