Abstract

441,319. Reflectors. LERAY, G., 5, Rue Dulaure, Paris. Dec. 21, 1934, No. 36752. Convention date, Dec. 21,1933. [Class 97 (i)] In an autocollimating reflector of he kind comprising a trihedron with its faces mutually at rightangles, the axis SH of the trihedron is inclined to the plane of the base so that a ray I incident at a predetermined angle will after refraction at the base surface be transmitted in a direction parallel to the axis. A reflector formed of a number of units as above may be made of a member of refractive material having one surface formed with a number of trihedral projections the axes of which are parallel and inclined to the refractive member. The refractive material may consist of glass which is shaped by moulding, grinding &c., or of plastic material which is moulded to the required shape. The material may be coloured. Specification 423,464 is referred to. In the Specification as open to inspection under Sect. 91 it is stated that the reflecting element may consist of three triangular mirrors at right-angles to each other, the open face of the trihedron thus formed being closed by refractive material. This subject-matter does not appear in the Specification as accepted.
