Definitions for "Diffusion"
The act of diffusing, or the state of being diffused; a spreading; extension; dissemination; circulation; dispersion.
The act of passing by osmosis through animal membranes, as in the distribution of poisons, gases, etc., through the body. Unlike absorption, diffusion may go on after death, that is, after the blood ceases to circulate.
molecules have energy, so when they are dissolved in water they move around a lot. The motion of any one atom or molecule has no particular direction, but a whole population of molecules will eventually get distributed more or less uniformly in the solution. Think about what happens if you put a drop of ink in a glass of water.
when elements of one culture spread to another without wholesale dislocation or migration.
The way in which an innovation begins with a small group of people, then gradually spreads to a wider population. The rate of diffusion often (roughly) follows an S-curve. See the work of Frank Bass, and Everett Rogers' book Diffusion of Innovations.
The transmission of cultural items or social practices from one group or society to another.
How a perfume gets into the air, in other words by spraying, burning or evaporation.
the property of being diffused or dispersed
the act of dispersing or diffusing something; "the dispersion of the troops"; "the diffusion of knowledge"
The random scattering of light rays either by being transmitted through a translucent medium or being reflected from a matte surface.
Scattering of sound. Diffusion reduces the sense of direction of sounds, which benefits sound produced by surround loudspeaker.
(1) The scattering of reflected light waves from an object, such as white paper. (2) Controlled application of impurity atoms to a semiconductor substrate.

The degree in which the fragrance radiates from the product or the user after the application of the product.
is the ability of a fragrance to develop its notes harmoniously leaving an impression of unity and volume in the air.
Mercaptopurine Systemic Metaplasia
the art or science of delivering air to achieve cooling or heating with good air distribution without causing discomfort or draughts, uses a diffuser
A method of using essential oils in which the oils are diffused into the air by means of heat as in a candle or electric aromalamp, or by nebulizing as in a glass diffuser.
The reduction of the harshness or intensity of light achieved by using a screen, glass filter or smoke.
(1) Material used on a movie light to soften shadows. (2) Filter used on a camera to create soft focus effect.
A translucent sheet (could be lace or silk) used in front of a light to cut down the shadows.

Is a process or treatment used to enhance the color of a gemstone. The diffusion process only colors the outer surface of the stone so chipping, polishing or scratching the stone will result in a loss of the enhanced color.
Process where a stone's color is altered through the use of very high heat to melt a coating into the gem's surface. This coating can be polished off, or worn away over time and use. Typically used on stones not damaged by high heat - primarily sapphire and ruby.
Diffusion is the process of applying a temporary coating onto the surface of a gemstone in order to enhance its color.

A technique for uranium enrichment in which the lighter Uranium 235 isotopes in UF6 gas move through a porous barrier more rapidly than the heavier Uranium 238 isotopes. See; Isotope.
a flow or loss of a gas under pressure through a rubber layer.
The process by which specific linguistic changes are incorporated into the idiolects of speakers in a language.
Tendency of conduction band electrons to wander across a pn junction to combine with valence band holes.
