The claims focus on the diameter and strength of the screen wires and as well as on the screen's "transmittance" and "reflectance" properties.
You have to be waving that antenna and ready for a little transmittance.
The light Thrama 80 lens is designed for 80 percent light transmittance, making it perfect for dark days or evenings, but not quite bright enough for a night-time mountain bike ride or twilight crit.
Yes, the rf transmittance of the Faraday cage was measured at NIST, and it was around 40-70 dB between 1 MHz and 3 GHz.
The percentage transmittance values are for the penetration of each wavelength into the water beneath before and after the removal of the snow.
Cloud transmittance of UV radiation depends on wavelength .
The maximum transmittance occurs at approximately 315 nanometers (nm), although the actual location of this maximum depends on the cloud optical depth, the amount of tropospheric ozone, and the SZA .
After correcting for transmittance by the atmosphere, UV-B at 305 nm is suggested to be the most likely wave band to damage the rat lens .
Furthermore, a recent action spectrum indicated that after correcting for corneal transmittance, the biological sensitivity of the rat lens to UV-B is at least as great at 295 nm as at 300 nm.
Therefore it is our wish to initiate the true transmittance of the authentic Tradition.– basing ourselves on the testimony of those who have known the past, because of their age and their prestige, and not only because of their authority.
