Orle

Definitions

  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • Orle (Her) A bearing, in the form of a fillet, round the shield, within, but at some distance from, the border.
    • Orle (Her) The wreath, or chaplet, surmounting or encircling the helmet of a knight and bearing the crest.
    • ***
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n orle In heraldry: A bearing, usually considered as a subordinary, like a border but not reaching the edge of the escutcheon, so that the field is seen outside of it as well as within. It is usually half the width of the border. It may be considered as an inescutcheon voided of the field, and in some early treatises is called a false escutcheon.
    • n orle A band of small objects taking the form of an orle: as, an orle of mullets. It is more commonly blazoned in orle (which see, below).
    • n orle A circlet set upon a helmet, which supports the crest and is often used in modern heraldry without the helmet, furnishing the only support or base for the crest. It is supposed to be a bourrelet of silk, twisted of the two tinctures, the principal metal and the principal color of the escutcheon.
    • n orle The rim of a shield; especially, the metal rim of a shield composed of wood, osier, or the like, and visible as a projecting rim on its face.
    • n orle In architecture, same as orlet.

Chambers's Twentieth Century Dictionary
    • n Orle orl (archit.) a fillet under the ovolo of a capital—also Or′let:
    • n Orle orl (her.) a border within a shield at a short distance from the edge.

Also overplotted is a synthetic spectrum for M 3-21 (lower curve), which includes contribution of recombination continuum and line emission from hydrogen and helium as well as CELs and ORLs from CNONe ions.
Elemental abundances of Galactic bulge planetary nebulae from optical recombination lines
Plasma diagnostic analyses were then carried out using both CELs and ORLs, followed by ionic and total elemental abundance determinations.

Electron temperatures deduced from H I Balmer discontinuity, from He I recombination lines and from O I I ORLs, as well as electron density derived from the H I Balmer decrement.
Elemental abundances of Galactic bulge planetary nebulae from optical recombination lines
It was later realized that the discrepancies were actually caused by the fact that those heavy element ORLs arise mainly from another component of plasma of very low Te , much lower than values deduced from the Balmer discontinuity of H I recombination spectrum (Liu 2003).

Ionic and elemental abundances have been derived from ORLs for some or all of the elements C, N, O, Ne and Mg for our sample of 31 PNe.

Total elemental abundances were derived from ionic abundances (both from CELs and ORLs) using the same procedures and ionization correction factors (ICFs) adopted in Wesson et al. (2005).
