  • Abbreviation of ordinary ray. One of the two rays into which a ray of light incident upon a doubly-refracting material is split, the other being the E-ray. Both rays are plane-polarized perpendicular to each other, and the ordinary ray is completely absorbed, while the extraordinary ray passes through the material.
