absorption loss

[əb′sȯrp·shən ‚lȯs]
(civil engineering)
The quantity of water that is lost during the initial filling of a reservoir because of absorption by soil and rocks.
(communications)
That part of the transmission loss due to the dissipation or conversion of either sound energy or electromagnetic energy into other forms of energy, either within the medium or attendant upon a reflection.

Conventional polycarbonate is one type of excellent polymer materials in the visible wavebands (400-700 nm), but its application in optical communication devices is limited because of its high absorption loss characteristic in the infrared waveband (11).
In general, many factors contribute to the propagation loss of optical waveguides, such as scattering and process-induced effect besides intrinsic absorption loss of material itself, caused by impurities of solution, uniformness of spin-coating step, and heat treatment of film (15).
