To alter the course of a wave of light, sound, etc. when the wave crosses the boundary between this medium and another through which it travels at a different speed.
From L. refractus, p.p. of refringere, → refraction.
Verb of šekast, → refraction.
partow-e šekasté (#)
Fr.: rayon réfracté
A → light ray that undergoes a change of velocity and direction, as a result of interaction with the material medium in which it travels.
Fr.: réfraction; à réfraction
manšur-e šekastgar (#)
Fr.: prisme réfractant
A prism that is used as a dispersing element in a spectrograph.
teleskop-e šekasti (#), durbin-e ~ (#)
Fr.: lunette astronomique
A telescope in which an image is formed by the refraction of light through a lens or lens system.
1) Optics: The change of direction which a beam of light undergoes as it
enters a medium of different → refractive index.
From L.L. refractionem (nominative refractio) "a breaking up," from L. refractus, p.p. of refringere "to break up," from re- "back" + combining form of frangere "to break," from PIE base *bhreg- "to break" (cf. Goth. brikan, O.E. brecan "to break;" Lith. brasketi "crash, crack").
Šekast, past stem of šekastan "to break, split;" Mid.Pers. škastan "to break;" Av. scind-, scand "to beak, cleave;" Proto-Iranian *skand- "to break, cleave;" PIE sken- "to cut off."
Fr.: indice de réfraction
Of any optical medium, the ratio of the → speed of light in vacuum (c) to that in the medium (v): n = c/v. The refractive index for vacuum, by definition, is 1. The refractive index of air is 1.00029 at standard temperature (25 °C) and pressure (1 atm). The refractive index of a medium depends on the wavelength of refracted wave. With light waves, n increases as the wavelength decreases. → Snell's law can be used to derive n. Same as → index of refraction.
Same as → refracting telescope.
Agent noun of refract, → refraction.
From refract, → refraction + adj. suffix -ory.

dišan-e šekasti-ye bâzâni
Fr.: indice de réfraction relatif
The ratio of the sine of the angle of incidence to the sine of the angle of refraction for a ray passing out of one of the media into the other.
Fr.: réacteur de recherche
A nuclear reactor designed for radionuclide production, materials testing, and training.
Fr.: réaction résonnante
A nuclear reaction whose probability is enhanced at an energy corresponding to an energy level of one of the nuclei. → resonance capture.
Fr.: facteur d'échelle
A number which scales, or multiplies, some quantity. In the equation
y = Cx, C is the scale factor for x. C is also the
coefficient of x, and may be called the constant of proportionality of
y to x.
