Definition of transmissivity in English:



  • The degree to which a medium allows something, in particular electromagnetic radiation, to pass through it.

    • ‘Not coincidentally, atmospheric transmissivity is nearly 100% at 3.8 m.’
    • ‘In experiments 3 and 4, the same white screens with two different transmissivities were used for shading the crops on two soil beds each.’
    • ‘Solar transmissivity in new windows is controlled through the use of tinted or coated glazings.’
    • ‘Second, only cloudless sky conditions are modeled, nevertheless a range of aerosol loadings may be achieved by modifying the transmissivity.’
    • ‘For this purpose, an atmospheric transmissivity is introduced for each concerned daily dose.’
