3: Diffraction:The process by which a beam of light or other system of waves is spread out as a result of passing through a narrow aperture or across an edge

4: Opaque: Not able to be seen through

5: Translucent: Allowing light but not detailed images to pass through

6: Transparent: Allowing light to pass through so that objects behind can be distinctly seen

7: Index of Refraction: the ratio of the velocity of light in a vacuum to that in a medium

8: Mirage: An optical illusion caused by atmospheric conditions, esp. the appearance of a sheet of water in a desert or on a hot road caused by the refraction of light from the sky by heated air
