In science:

These detectors feature high channel density, high occupancy and high data rate.

The rate of this process is given by an emission vertex V times the occupation probabilities for the left and right colliding modes.
Fuzzballs and the information paradox: a summary and conjectures
The reason being that all of these fields have the same mass and decay width as χ1 , and single-crossing occupation numbers in instant preheating are insensitive to the spin of the field.11 On the other hand, the χ4 scalar, B gauge field, and Ψ4 fermion have a different mass and decay rate.

The latter decay rate is so large that there is simply no time for building up particle occupation numbers (and thus resonant production like in parametric resonance) of χ fields.

It acts as thermal production rate when their occupation numbers are below their equilibrium values and as dissipation rate in the opposite case.

For high rate experiments demanding online tracking of several hundred particles per 100 nsec bunch crossing such a concept may not work due to too high occupancy of single fiber channels.
