**Nuclear transparency** is the ratio of cross-sections for exclusive processes from the nuclei to those of the nucleons.

If the nuclear cross-section is denoted as and free nucleon cross-section as
then nuclear transparency can be defined as

, where can be parameterized in terms of as .

Therefore, transparency can be expressed as .

Here nucleon cross-section can be thought of as hydrogen cross-section and nuclei cross-section can be as for other targets.
