Hi Frank, it's not to do with opaqueness to light. It is about
plane waves scattering angles. These diagrams might make it
clearer to you.
So we have to look at the dielectric boundary layers in the
ionosphere, and what happens with the incident plane waves at
x-ray energies. http://www.mx.iucr.org/iucr-top/comm/ct ... node5.html
Or am I just full of it??
