In the atmosphere of the Easterly weather, as pellucid as a piece of crystal and refracting
like a prism, we could see the appalling numbers of our helpless company, even to those who in more normal conditions would have remained invisible, sails down under the horizon.
The unusual weather sighting, which is often referred to as a "smile in the sky", is an optical effect created by light refracting
off ice particles in thin cloud at high levels.
The company's new examination services capitalize on the advantages of automated refracting
equipment from Eyelogic System to produce pinpoint results that ensure each patient finds their ideal eye care solution.
With over 35 years experience in optics and optical engineering in contexts of cancer, aerospace, and manufacturing, Vanderwerf here deals primarily with the optics of refracting
and reflecting planar surfaces in the form of prismatic refracting
and reflecting components, and the design, analysis, and applications of these components.
Last year, researchers showed that a suitably shaped piece of negatively refracting
material could hide an object by guiding microwaves around it (SN: 7/15/06, p.
The man is a presence, undoubtedly; stomping about in his large frame, refracting
sunlight from his mouthful of precious stones.
The lesson also integrates the science concepts of reflecting and refracting
light and the basic anatomy of a goldfish.
Harking back to the earlier era's effort to dismantle the artwork's autonomy by refracting
it across multiple registers, Gordon's project is a filmic re-presentation of a live action.
She barely reports on her own obsessions until the final chapters, throwing all her narrative into one more refracting
array of questions.
