transmissivity

[‚tranz·mə′siv·əd·ē]
(electromagnetism)
The ratio of the transmitted radiation to the radiation arriving perpendicular to the boundary between two mediums.

Transmissivity

The fraction of light that passes through the interior of a glass pane at normal incidence in one traversal. This does not consider light lost to reflection by the front or back surface, or multiple internal reflections.

transmissivity
