Extensive melting was documented in the latest report, despite relatively good conditions: Spring snow formed a reflective layer
, and the snow-free season was shorter compared to previous seasons, which helped prevent even worse melting, according to Fischer.
The reflective layer
contains extremely thin, high-brightness aluminum flakes and must be applied very precisely to ensure even coating.
These soft waveguides are lined with reflective gold; as the silicone is stretched, cracks develop in the reflective layer
, allowing light to escape.
On OCT examination, ERM appears as a highly reflective layer
on the inner retinal surface that is either totally adherent or partially adherent to the retina (see Figure 4C).
In cold weather, an internal reflective layer
recycles body heat
The colour looks better than the primary display, but that can be attributed to the visual impact of the reflective layer
over the screen.
Formerly a division of Mitsui, MAM-A has been an independent company since 2003 and touts its CD-Rs and DVD-Rs as the gold standard for archiving data, thanks in large part to a reflective layer
of 24 karat gold.
In this model, the components of the aspect oriented support layer placed on top of the OpenCOM reflective layer
and the distributed aspect oriented services like aspect composition are placed over the GridKit middleware.
The C2 Fine technology that enabled high contrast ratios in transmissive HTPS panels has been optimized for the reflective HTPS panels, and Epson's unique planarization technology is used to make the reflective layer
almost perfectly flat so as to control the scattering of light.
Mizelle says the scratch-resistant, 24-karat gold CDs will not tarnish--as can sometimes occur with silver CDs because of their reflective layer
The quality of both the reflective layer
and the recording or dye layer determines how long the CD will remain readable.
Incidentally, this reflective layer
is why we see "eye-shine" when our headlights strike a deer after dark.
