Class Information
Number: 356/445
Name: Optics: measuring and testing > Of light reflection (e.g., glass)
Description: Subject matter which includes either a material or a sample designed to be placed next to or upon a material or sample to be examined on the basis of reflected light intensity; and which includes either light generating and optical means to direct the generated light, or optical means to direct natural light onto the material or sample to be examined, so that the light is reflected therefrom for examination by visual or photosensitive means to indicate or record, when so desired, the intensity or differences of intensity of the reflected light.
