Definition of diffractive in English:



  • See diffract

    • ‘Superimposing such a diffractive structure on an aspheric surface yields an achromatic singlet whose spherical and chromatic aberrations are corrected.’
    • ‘The large, open aperture of the exposed gain media provides plenty of room to multiplex pump beams as well as very low diffractive loss for the circulating laser mode.’
    • ‘Other potential avenues for lightweight optical assemblies involve diffractive elements and/or alternative materials.’
    • ‘The general wavefront coding element is nonrotationally symmetric and smooth, although diffractive surfaces can be used.’
    • ‘Vortex launch with diffractive optical elements reduces back reflection into the laser source and improves the bandwidth over multimode fiber links.’
