Diffusion is essentially the property of light-scattering as held by a polygonal object?s surface. It is a determination of how much light is reflected, as well as absorbed, by the surface.

Diffusion maps are often applied over texturemaps, to indicate how the surface consistency changes across its surface. As the diffusion level drops, so does the reflectivity of light, thus less of the colour of the object is returned. At 0% diffusion all light is absorbed, and the object is essentially invisible at that point.
