[′in·sə·dənt ¦līt]
(optics)
The direct light that falls on a surface.

incident light

In computer graphics, light that strikes an object. The color of the object is based on how the light is absorbed or reflected by the object. See ambient lighting.

The incident light disseminates in diverse direction, depending upon their composition & size and shape.
Also to be featured in the festival are Dos mas Dos (Two Plus Two), directed by Diego Caplan, a story that centers on family and romance; Ariel Winogard's comedy Mama se fue de viaje (10 Days Without Mom), which tells the story of a father who was left to care for his children when his wife decides to take a short vacation with a friend; and the black-and-white film La Luz Incident (Incident Light), directed by Ariel Rotter, which tells the intimate story about family, love and mourning that takes place in Buenos Aires during the 1960s.
Upper part: Every quantum jump (gray and black arrows) can be observed by the incident light.
Ideal for use within the architectural glass & facade, retail and entertainment industry, ARMAX glass has the ability to significantly reduce the incident light reflection to just a small fraction of conventionally coated or uncoated glass.
One sees laser diodes every day in laser pointers, barcode readers, and the like, and a key element of such devices is an optical-gain medium, which, instead of absorbing incident light, amplifies it.
A dark mirror coating absorbs incident light, rather than reflecting or transmitting it, and is often used to define the aperture of an optical system where control of stray light or elimination of crosstalk is critical.
The PowerMax-Pro kW sensor's optical design traps more than 99 per cent of the incident light inside the enclosure, eliminating this problem.
These are typically carbon-based, with a strong broadband absorption, and adding them to the polymer powders increases the conversion of incident light to heat, allowing for greater print speeds.
It bends the incident light through the telephoto lens by 90 degrees, doing so opens up comparatively more space for moving the lens element, thereby allowing for up to 5x optical zoom.
In solar thermophotovoltaic systems, the absorber is responsible for absorbing the incident light and determines the system's total input energy.
The engineering problem is twofold: first, it is necessary to avoid strong reflection when launching light from free space, and second, it is desirable to transform the incident light into small-scale radiation which is strongly damped and can be almost totally absorbed in a quite thin MM layer.
