n.
The gradual reduction of excessive oscillation, vibration, or signal intensity, and therefore of instability in a mechanical or electrical device, by a substance or some aspect of the device.

damping

(ˈdæmpɪŋ)
n
1. moistening or wetting
2. stifling, as of spirits
3. (Electronics) electronics the introduction of resistance into a resonant circuit with the result that the sharpness of response at the peak of a frequency is reduced
4. (General Engineering) engineering any method of dispersing energy in a vibrating system
