interception-band love



from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia

  • n. In physiology and psychophysics, a narrow band of color produced, under certain conditions of experiment, by the passage of a pendulum or other light rod across a bicolor disk observed with the resting eye: so called, as opposed to illusion-band, because it is due to the purely geometrical relations of the disk and the intercepting pendulum.
