A system concept evidenced by interchangeable lenses and various accessory modules for scanning--from the transmitted light table with corresponding original holders for slides, glass plate negatives or film formats, to an A2 book cradle with or without a glass plate, and up to a copyboard table for A1 formats.
These fully-metallised threads then evolved to become woven within the paper substrate to make windowed threads, which appear in some areas emerging on either the front or reverse of the paper and are visible in both reflected and transmitted light.
Here, an arrangement of 64 photocells well spatially distributed or a Webcam can be attached to screen and/or follow the transmitted light intensity changes and the scattering patterns formed.
For semi-crystalline thermoplastics, the level of transmitted light goes up as the section thickness decreases, not just a factor of thickness but also because of more rapid cooling from the melt (quenching), which suppresses the amount of crystallisation.
The expansion alters the lens' focal length and diminishes transmitted light, Lyon says.
For [delta][omega] [much greater than] 0 the phase shift is -180[degrees], while on resonance ([delta][omega] = 0) it becomes -90[degrees], while the modulation amplitude of the transmitted light reaches a maximum.
Pilkington Suncool[TM] is an off-line coated glass with a capacity to control light and heat; the 2:1 ratio of transmitted light to heat reduces energy consumption and keeps occupants cool in summer and warm in winter.
By using specific combinations of films, such properties as abrasion resistance, diverse color, high depth of color, symbols and transmitted light technology can be brought together in one single product as part of a simple process.
The KAM OID detects the interface by measuring the absorption of the transmitted light into the fluid.
The CCD camera and optics are beneath the glass, and a ring light underneath provides surface illumination for the measurement of features where transmitted light is not possible.
However, there are some disadvantages inherent in epifluorescence microscopy: a) mechanical switching of filter cubes to view different color fluorescence can cause misalignment of images; b) multi-pas s filter cubes can eliminate the misalignment problem, but may attenuate the emission light; and c) the epi-fluorescent light source cannot be used in combination with transmitted light techniques such as Phase or differential interference contrast (DIC) microscopy.
These include X-ray diffraction, transmitted light microscopy, reflected light microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and electron microprobe.
