focus (fokes) pl. focuses or foci (-s)
n.
1 the point where rays of light, heat, etc. or waves of sound come together, or from which they spread or seem to spread; specif., the point where rays of light reflected by a mirror or refracted by a lens meet (called real focus) or the point where they would meet if prolonged backward through the lens or mirror (called virtual focus)
2 focal length
3 an adjustment of the focal length to make a clear image [to bring a camera into focus]
4 any center of activity, attention, etc.
5 a part of the body where a disease process, as an infection, tumor, etc., is localized or most active
6 the starting point of an earthquake
7 Math. a) either of the two fixed points used in determining an ellipse b) any analogous point for a parabola or hyperbola (see eccentricity, sense 3)
vt.
-cused or -cussed, -cusing or -cussing
1 to bring into focus
2 to adjust the focal length of (the eye, a lens, etc.) in order to produce a clear image
3 to fix or settle on one thing; concentrate [to focus one's attention on a question]
vi.
1 to meet at a focus
2 to adjust one's eye or a lens so as to make a clear image
in focus
clear; distinct; sharply defined
out of focus
indistinct; blurred; not sharply defined
focuser
n.
