interstellar reddening
  سُرخش ِ اندر-اختری   
sorxeš-e andaraxtari

Fr.: rougissement interstellaire   

The dimming of light during its travel in the → interstellar medium due to absorption by → intervening → dust grains. Since shorter wavelengths are particularly affected, the spectrum of the light is increasingly dominated by the long wavelength end of the spectrum. As a result, the light is "reddened" as it travels through space. Robert J. Trumpler (1886-1956), a Swiss-American astronomer, was the first to produce a definite evidence of the existence of → interstellar extinction and to estimate its magnitude (1930).

interstellar; → reddening.

interstellar reddening curve
  خم ِ سُرخش ِ اندر-اختری   
xam-e sorxeš-e andaraxtari

Fr.: courbe de rougissement interstellaire   

A graph showing the relation between → interstellar absorption (in magnitudes) and wavelength.

interstellar; → reddening; → curve.

interstellar scintillation
  سوسوی ِ اندر-اختری   
susu-ye andaraxtari

Fr.: scintillation interstellaire   

An apparent twinkling of the signals from distant point-like radio sources (pulsars). It is due to turbulence, i.e. fluctuations in the electron density of the interstellar ionized gas, through which the signals have passed on their way to Earth.

interstellar; → scintillation.


Fr.: inter-système   

Describing something that involves mutual relations between systems.

inter-; → system.

intersystem crossing
  گذر ِ اندر-راژمانی   
gozar-e andar-râžmâni

Fr.: conversion intersystème   

A → radiationless relaxation process in which a molecule in some excited → electronic state converts to a state of different spin → multiplicity. Intersystem crossing is analogous to → internal conversion.

intersystem; → crossing.

intersystem line
  خط ِ اندر-راژمانی   
xatt-e andar-râžmâni

Fr.: raie semi-interdite   

In spectroscopy, same as → semi-forbidden line.

inter-; → system.

andarvâr (#)

Fr.: intervalle   

1) Math.: A portion of a real line (i.e. a line with a fixed scale so that every real number corresponds to a unique point on the line) between two designated endpoints. → span.
2) Music: Difference in pitch between two tones of a scale.

From O.Fr. intervalle, from L.L. intervallum, originally "space between two palisades or ramparts," from → inter- "between" + vallum "rampart."

Andarvâr, literally "between walls," from andar-inter- + vâr "wall," as in divâr "wall" (originally "fortress wall," from *dida-vāra-), variant bâru "wall, rampart, fortification; fort; tower;" Mid.Pers. bâr, var "enclosure, defences, fortress;" Av. var- "castle."


Fr.: intervenir   

1) To occur or be between two things.
2) To occur or happen between other events or periods.
3) Law: To interpose and become a party to a suit pending between other parties (

Back-formation from → intervention.


Fr.: intervenant   

Occurring or falling between events or points.

intervene; → -ing.

intervening dust
  غبار ِ اندرگمنده   
qobâr-e andargamandé

Fr.: poussière intervenante   

A cloud of dust particles that happens to lie on the → line of sight between the → observer and the → object.

intervening; → dust.


Fr.: intervention   

The act or fact of intervening.

M.E., from M.Fr. intervention, or directly from L.L., from L. intervenire "to come between, interrupt," from → inter-, + venire "to come," as below.

Andargam "coming between," from andar- "between," → inter-, + gam "to come;" cf. Av./O.Pers. gam- "to come; to go," Mod./Mid.Pers. gâm "step, pace," âmadan "to come;" cf. Skt. gamati "goes;" Gk. bainein "to go, walk, step;" L. venire "to come;" O.H.G. queman "to come;" E. come; PIE root *gwem- "to go, come."

  ۱) اندردا؛ ۲) اندرداییدن   
1) andardâ; 2) andardâyidan

Fr.: 1) interview, entretien; 2) interviewer, avoir un entretien avec   

1a) A formal meeting in which one or more persons question, consult, or evaluate another person.
1b) A meeting or conversation in which a writer or reporter asks questions of one or more persons from whom material is sought for a newspaper story, television broadcast, etc. The report of such a conversation or meeting.
2) To have an interview with in order to question, consult, or evaluate (

From M.Fr. entrevue, verbal noun from s'entrevoir "to see each other, visit each other," from entre- "between," → inter-, + O.Fr. voir "to see," from L. videre, → review.

Andardâ, from andar-, → inter-, + "to see," → review.

  اندرداشو، اندرداشونده

From L. intra "on the inside, within; during; below." Commonly opposed to → extra-.

Darun "in, into; within" (Mid.Pers. andarôn "inside," from andar, → inter-, + rôn "side, direction;" Av. ravan- "(course of a) river").
Dar "in, into; within," from Mid.Pers. andar, → inter-.
Foru "down, downward; below; beneath" (Mid.Pers. frôt "down, downward;" O.Pers. fravata "forward, downward;" cf. Skt. pravát- "a sloping path, the slope of a mountain").
