Term Main definition
Reflection
(1) A return of electromagnetic energy that occurs at an impedance mismatch in a transmission line, such as a LAN cable. See also return loss. (2) The immediate and opposite change in direction that happens to a light beam when it strikes a reflective surface. Reflection causes several spectral problems, including high optical distortion and enhanced intensity noise.
