Definition
To change the velocity of a beam of light (apparently bending it) or other wave-form as it passes (at an angle) from one medium into another.
  • The red sunlight was shining on the windows of St. Mary's Church behind our seat, and as the sun dipped there was just sufficient change in the refraction and reflection to make it appear as if the light moved.
