What is Diffusion ?
Definition of Diffusion in Construction
The term is used in the construction industry to identify the breaking up of a light source, water source or other energy source to broadcast the energy more uniformly. A perfect example of this use, is a light fixture lens that diffuses the light of the lamp, into a more uniform and constant glow. A water strainer at the end of a faucet will diffuse the water, to eliminate the one constant stream and more evenly distribute the flow of water. A film that is placed on a clear glass panel with the intent to diffuse the light, as well as the ability to see through the glass, is a diffusion of vision and the light transmission through this pane of glass.
