Fr.: oculaire orthoscopique
A telescopic eyepiece that produces a wide field of view (between 40° and 50°). The eyepiece consists of a single element lens that is normally plano-convex, and a cemented triplet that is usually symmetrical.
To have, produce, or generate oscillations. → vibrate.
From L. oscillatus, p.p. of oscillare "to swing," from oscill(um) "swing" + -ate a suffix forming verbs from L. words.

Fr.: Univers oscillatoire
A cosmological model in which the Universe is closed and undergoes a series of oscillations, each beginning with a big bang and ending with a big crunch.
The state of any quantity when the value of that quantity is continually changing so that it passes through maximum and minimum values.
Verbal noun of → oscillate.
tarz-e naveš, mod-e ~
Fr.: modes d'oscillation
Same as → pulsation mode.
A device for producing sonic or ultrasonic pressure waves in a medium. A device with no rotating parts for converting direct current into alternating current.
Agent noun of → oscillate.
Fr.: force d'oscillateur
A quantum-mechanical measure of the probability that a specific atomic transition will occur. It is used in the equation for the absorption coefficient of a spectral line. Also known as f value.
Geometry: Of a curve, to touch another curve so as to have the same tangent and curvature at the point of contact.
From L. osculatum p.p. of osculari "to kiss," from osculum "kiss," literally "little mouth," diminutive of os "mouth;" PIE *os-/*ous- "mouth;" cf. Av. āh- "mouth;" Skt. ās-, āsán- "mouth;" Hittite aiš- "mouth;" O.Ir. á "mouth;" O.N. oss "mouth."

Participial adjective of → osculate.
Fr.: cercle osculateur
The circle that touches a curve (on the concave side) and whose radius is the radius of curvature.
Fr.: éléments orbitaux osculateurs
The orbital elements of an osculating orbit.
Fr.: orbite osculatrice
The Keplerian orbit that a satellite would follow after a specific time t if all forces other than central inverse-square forces ceased to act from time t on. An osculating orbit is tangent to the real, perturbed, orbit and has the same velocity at the point of tangency.
Fr.: plan osculateur
For a curve C at a point p, the limiting plane obtained from taking planes through the tangent to C at p and containing some variable point p' and then letting p' approach p along C.
sepehr-e âbusandé, kore-ye ~
Fr.: sphère osculatrice
For a curve C at a point p, the limiting sphere obtained by taking the sphere that passes through p and three other points on C and then letting these three points approach p independently along C.
The contact between two osculating curves or the like.
Verbal noun of → osculate
A → spacecraft whose goal is to collect a sample from the asteroid → 101955 Bennu and bring it back to Earth. It was launched by → NASA on September 8, 2016. OSIRIS-REx will spend two years chasing Bennu down, finally rendezvousing with the → near-Earth asteroid in August 2018. The spacecraft will then study the → asteroid Bennu from orbit for another two years before grabbing at least 60 grams of surface material in July 2020. The sample should reach Earth in 2023. The analysis of the sample would allow to study the role that → B-type asteroids like Bennu, which are primitive and apparently carbon-rich, may have played in helping life appear on Earth.
The name is short for Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security, Regolith Explorer .

It was discovered in 1803 simultaneously with → iridium in a crude → platinum ore by the English chemist Smithson Tennant.
From Gk. osme "smell" because of the sharp odor of the volatile oxide.
The process by which solvent molecules pass through a partially permeable membrane from a dilute solution into a more concentrated solution, thus equalizing the concentrations of materials on either side of the membrane. → permeability.
Extracted from Fr. endosmose "endosmosis" and exosmose "exosmosis," from Gk. prefixed osmos "a thrusting, a pushing," from othein "to push, to thrust;" cf. Av. vādāiiôit "breaks through, hunts," vadah- "wedge;" Mod.Pers. guvah, gavah "wedge;" Skt. vadh- "to slay, kill," vadha- "killer."
