absorptivity

[ab′sôrptiv′itē]
absorbance at a particular wavelength divided by the product of the concentration of a substance and the sample path length.

As such, most photons which approach an opaque surface with low absorptivity are reflected away from the body.
The results indicate that the lowest reflectance, hence the maximum absorptivity, is obtained for the solutions with molar ratio/50 where the absorptivity reached 0.
We used absorbance to assess bilirubin solubility by monitoring the absorptivity and [[lambda].
When considering the radiation energy absorbed by a surface one needs to consider a different property called the absorptivity [alpha] which is defined as the fraction of incident radiation that is absorbed by a surface.
The changes in the absorptivity at 232 nm of all systems are presented in Fig.
11) found the largest absorptivity differences with the unpigmented coatings; for the white coatings the difference was smaller whereas the difference was insignificant for the black ones.
In addition, use with a traditional fabric softener will increase water absorptivity.
This will reduce absorptivity and ensure the permafrost's integrity.
Emission and reflection are considered diffuse or equal at every angle and absorptivity is considered to be independent of the incidence angle.
Numerous lignin sources have been used as standards for calibrating the procedure with absorptivity at 280 nm ranging form 11.
5) Spectral absorptivity is a key factor in determining the best wavelengths for most effective curing.
Handsheets prepared from a mixture of equal parts of clay and fiber and 1%, 3%, and 5% latex were tested for clay content, tensile strength and water absorptivity.
