The molecular refractivity is higher for certain low heat release polymers such as polyimides, phthalonitriles, heavier elements like--chlorine or phosphorous containing polymers, as compared with vinyl-polymers, hence this descriptor has a negative contribution to HRC.
This model uses the wet term of earth refractivity wet N, regarding relative humidity and temperature, averaged at least once a month as input (Agunlejika et al.
July 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA's Langley Research Center has selected three universities to provide the agency with support for a climate science mission called CLARREO, short for Climate Absolute Radiance and Refractivity Observatory Mission.

Interactive testing and digital mockup exploration allow for real-time editing of visual characteristics, such as transparency and refraction, grain, colors and textures, refractivity, complex scene illumination and 2-D unfolding of complex 3-D surfaces for fabric simulation.
Placing dense heterochromatin in the center of the nucleus raises the refractivity index--the degree to which the material decreases the speed of light through it.
