Demax has achieved this using a high density holographic grating that diffracts the light close to the surface in the direction where the falling beams are not visible.
Light at a given wavelength diffracts away both left and right from normal, while light passing through a prism all bends in the same direction.
It is a quirk of nature that the way light diffracts through a grating means that there is an increase in dispersion with increasing order.
These optical components are called gratings because they are grooved with lines off which light bounces, or diffracts.
A grating is inscribed into the waveguide, which diffracts the light into wavelength-specific angles: different wavelengths are diffracted to a different extent, so they end up spatially separated.
A diffraction grating (DG) is a passive optical component that diffracts polychromatic light into its component wavelengths or monochromatic light into surfaces of constant phase, Fig.
The fine grating period of the circular scale (approximately 2 [micro]m) diffracts the light, which is then collimated in the scanning reticle and brought into interference.
A low-energy x-ray beam diffracts off of the sample.
The beamline for the UCN station begins with the double-crystal monochromator that diffracts a monochromatic neutron beam centered at 0.
Our sensor diffracts light in a narrow wavelength band (color) in the visible spectrum; the diffracted band shifts as the glucose concentration changes.
