- ‘In the holographic glass approach, multiple holograms are angularly multiplexed in glass to produce large-angle deflections.’
- ‘I used parametric tests on angularly transformed data.’
- ‘The experimental setup uses a standard OCT system with an additional apparatus to rotate the sample to acquire multiple angularly displaced OCT images (displaced-reflector images).’
- ‘We found that the index of refraction used for the material comprising the core was very important in terms of the resulting angularly resolved scattering signatures.’

- ‘Irradiation of aminolevulinic acid/protoporphyrin IX-sensitized cells with 10 J cm - 2 of 514 nm light led to pronounced changes in angularly resolved light scattering consistent with mitochondrial swelling.’
- ‘But Mrs Rocatti better arrive soon, before Dundee's angularly athletic goalkeeper earns himself a move elsewhere.’
- ‘A fourth group extends angularly from the fourth common plane toward the front end in a fourth common oblique plane to form a fourth terminal edge which extends beyond the third terminal edge.’
