175 m 2 , the embossing plates with cut-outs are individually manufactured, deep-drawn aluminum plates, with a prismatic structure and diamond-shaped, laser-cut recesses, which follow an irregular texture tailored to the structure.
Designed by architect Foster + Partners, the glass office tower takes on the form of a sharp prismatic structure, with the facade appearance transforming in synchronisation with the position of the sun over the course of the day.
Luminit's Display Brightness Film is a prismatic structure embedded on a 250um thick polycarbonate substrate which has higher temperature durability when compared to polyester films.
Yet "The Homesman" is neither so conventional as that, nor so fresh as to mess with the relatively episodic series of incidents that define such a trek--unlike the more prismatic structure of Jones' exceptional first feature, 2005's "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada." With three burials of its own, this more conventionally told feature similarly invests character and landscape with enormous significance, creating in Mary Bee and George personalities large enough to share the frame with the expansive Midwestern sky (though a good deal of the time, it's actually New Mexico or Georgia).
Bw: 17-49/69 cm, yellowish brown (10YR 5/6) moist and brownish yellow (10YR 6/6) dry, prismatic structure, sandy loam texture, friable consistence, common rock fragments, few fine roots, diffuse, broken boundary
The concept developed and patented by VU University uses an "optical switch" by creating a prismatic structure of the thermoplastic panels made from Sabic's Lexan polycarbonate sheet in such a way that the sunlight can be reflected before the panels get too hot.
The external layer is 0.20-0.50 mm thick at a tube diameter of 3.2 mm and has a semiregular spherulitic prismatic ultrastructure similar to the molluscan spherulitic prismatic structure sensu Carter et al.
A sketch was prepared of the pit face showing the prismatic structure in the BC horizon and fractures in the glacial till.
However, they do not form distinct layers but occur within the lamellae of a spherulitic prismatic structure (Fig.
maximus shells where the foliated structure is covered by a layer of prismatic structure called the myostracal layer (Kennedy et al.
Today Wavefront Technology has grown and expanded into a successful enterprise with experience in holographic and optical micro structures that includes HOEs, holographic diffusers, computer generated elements, diamond cut prismatic structures including Fresnel lenses, and other custom patterned surface relief structures.
