Examples

  • Glory: Also known as an anthelion (opposite the sun), A glory is produced by light backscattered (a combination of diffraction, reflection and refraction) towards its source by a cloud of uniformly-sized water droplets.

    Celestial Phenomena

  • It is also interesting that when the red layer of the chips was analyzed by backscattered electron imaging, that the signals for iron and oxygen did not overlap well.

    Was it Nanotech-Thermite or Phasers that took down the WTC?

  • An increase in surface albedo leads to an increase in downwelling UV radiation, as part of the radiation that is reflected upward is backscattered by air molecules or clouds.

  • (B) Bubble, now exposed, as imaged by backscattered-electron imaging.

    Evidence for Fluid Saturation and Degassing

  • Advanced backscattered electron, as well as secondary electron and ion detectors, collect a wide variety of topographic, elemental and compositional information "from every angle."

  • "Since light reflected from sub-epithelial tissue will become 'depolarized,' while light that is backscattered from epithelial cells will preserve its polarization, the technique of polarization subtraction - or polarized light scattering spectroscopy - retains and conveys only the diagnostically important information."

    Gadget Freak Files

  • Analyses are being made by traditional and state-of-the-art methods including standard petrography, cathodoluminescence, scanning electron microscope/backscattered electron imaging with energy dispersive X-ray analyses, X-ray energy mapping, and ultraviolet fluorescence.
