With all such drinks,
And after them tumble the mixer;

In science:

The existence of compressible modes in supersonic flows causes only a slight Mach number dependence of the mixing timescale, and the primary “mixer” is the stretching by solenoidal modes even at very high Mach numbers.

The light yield resulting from the mixer configuration is of primary importance in determining the photostatistics for the readout.
sPHENIX: An Upgrade Concept from the PHENIX Collaboration
This number will be reduced by the light collection efficiency of the mixer, but with this high initial light yield, it should be possible to maintain sufficient photostatistics so as not to affect the overall energy resolution of the calorimeter.
sPHENIX: An Upgrade Concept from the PHENIX Collaboration
The photon detection efficiency is ∼ 36% and it should therefore be possible to adjust the light level to the SiPM using a mixer to place the full energy range for each tower (∼ 5 MeV–50 GeV) in its useful operating range.
sPHENIX: An Upgrade Concept from the PHENIX Collaboration
For example, if the light levels were adjusted to give 10,000 photoelectrons for 50 GeV, this would require only 200 photoelectrons/GeV, which should be easily achieved given the light level from the fibers entering the mixer.
sPHENIX: An Upgrade Concept from the PHENIX Collaboration
At 150 GHz, SIS mixers provide another method of coherent amplification.
