### Small 90 degree reflector

I discovered this small reflector over two years ago while trying to find a stable 90 degree reflector.

Code: Select all

``````# small 90 degree reflector
# April 2007 Emerson Perkins
#CXRLE Pos=-2,9
x = 14, y = 13, rule = B3/S23
bo\$2bo4b2o\$3o4b2o4\$7b2obo\$7b2ob3o\$13bo\$7b2ob3o\$8bobo\$8bobo\$9bo!
``````
Once the glider reaches the eater the block turns into a glider at 90 degrees in just 7 generations. Although it is not a stable reflector, it only requires one block to reset and do it again. Interestingly, the eater recovers and will consume any gliders following on the same track.

I have tried various ways to rebuild the block, but this reflector is so efficient that there is no spark to work with. But I did find a stable 2g to H converter using this same initial pattern. A 2 glider salvo is converted to a Herschel and the block is replaced by the Herschel reaction, ready to go again. This could be useful when constructing in tight spaces. I did have trouble getting the herschel to enter into a herschel conduit because the still life in the conduit gets in the way of the next incoming salvo.

When I compare the reflector with the ones in the Golly blockic reflectors it rates a quick -4 generations in making the turn and belongs in the left column.

I want to post this so maybe someone can do more with it. I have not used Herschel conduits much.

The 2g to H reaction below is a recent attempt to let the herschel escape:

Code: Select all

``````#C 2g to H stable reaction with 74 gen reload
#CXRLE Pos=-21,-31
x = 38, y = 53, rule = B3/S23

knightlife, you should probably remove all those #CXRLE lines when posting patterns here. Golly only processes such lines if they are at the *start*, so in your examples they never actually do anything anyway.

### Re: Small 90 degree reflector

The Fx119 conduit can be bolted on to let the Herschel escape:

Code: Select all

``````x = 44, y = 37, rule = S23/B3
19bo7bo\$17boo7bo\$18boo6b3o11\$21bo\$21bo\$3boboo3boo9b3o\$b3oboo3boo11bo\$o

\$25bo5boo\$22b3o6boo\$22bo!``````

By the way, these partial reflectors are exactly the sort of device I'm looking for.

For example, Dieter discovered this:

Code: Select all

``````x = 16, y = 21, rule = S23/B3
o\$3o\$3bo\$bboo3\$5bo\$4bo\$4b3o\$\$12boo\$5boo5bobo\$5boo7bo\$14boo6\$6boo\$6boo!``````
which I managed to incorporate into stable reflector that recovers in just 487 ticks:

Code: Select all

``````x = 134, y = 95, rule = S23/B3

Calcyman, thanks for the Herschel escape, I am not up to speed on Herschel conduits.
One of my favorite reflectors makes two gliders, one turns 90 degrees left and one turns 90 degrees right
in a clean collision reaction:

### Re: Small 90 degree reflector

A simple one-time switch can be made using your reflection reaction:

x = 92, y = 59, rule = S23/B3

(The F117 is added as a proof of concept; it is not part of the switch.)

### Re: Small 90 degree reflector

Cool. The H-to-Block reaction can "store" a Herschel as a block that can then be reactivated at a later time.
This also reminds me of a memory bit (the block) that has a destructive readout.
Ancient computers used "core memory" that had destructive readout but was still useful.
After readout the state of the memory bit has to be restored.
I am sure a Herschel circuit could be designed to implement this kind of memory bit.

In other words I think this switch could be made into a permanent switch by using the reflected glider to
come back and restore the block. A separate mechanism would then either "set" or "reset" the bit.
The "set" is already implemented (H-to-Block) and the "reset" is easy: destroy the block directly (not using the reflect reaction).

However, I am pretty sure there is a better way to make a permanent switch.

Yes. Dave Greene has made the most compact latch so far.

However, I've built a much larger alternative, which consists of just blocks, eaters and beehives. It contains an ingenious block toggle switch developed by Brice Due, protected using a bistable switch.
It's used (to good effect) in my infamous Spartan universal computer-constructor:

### Re: Small 90 degree reflector

Speaking of clean collision reactions, I have made a collection of reflectors and duplicators out of single types of still lifes. I have been having trouble with loaves. EDIT: Never mind: got it. Now working on ships and loaves. EDIT: Whoops! I meant carriers, which by now is done. EDIT: Ships are done, and feel free to post your own single-still-life type destructive reflector.

P.S. Credit me with the idea of single still lifes making destructive reflectors.

Addendum: An R-pond collision that produces a MWSS along with some other debris.

Code: Select all

``````x = 9, y = 8, rule = B3/S23

``````
EDIT: Changed "single still life" to "single still life type".

### Re: Small 90 degree reflector

Here's a single-still-life 90-degree reflector that came up when I was running some patterns that showed up in the Soup Search; it's made up of a single boat.

Code: Select all

Don't forget about the eater.
It is also a 90 degree reflector by itself.
The eater tends to get used only as an eater.

That result has been known for ages (decades, possibly?). You're not alone - most of us (including me, admittedly) have re-invented wheels before!

Wow! Adding a passive block can turn the honeyfarm into a glider, without destroying the block. Only the loaf remains.

### Re: Small 90 degree reflector

That works, I guess. But what I meant was to have multiple instances of a single type of still life to destroy themselves and simultaneously reflect the glider. See "blockish-and-blockic-seeds.rle" in Golly for examples with blocks.

### Re: Small 90 degree reflector

A small 90 degree reflector which uses half of a LOM (result) with the help of an eater:

Code: Select all

``````x = 15, y = 13, rule = B3/S23
2o\$2o3\$b2o\$b2o3\$12b2o\$5b2o5bobo\$5bo6bo\$6b3o\$8bo!
``````
If the other half of the LOM could be inhibited with catalysts then only two gliders are needed to restore the two blocks:

Code: Select all

``````x = 44, y = 33, rule = B3/S23
bo\$2bo\$3o7\$3bo\$3b2o\$2bobo3\$17b2o\$17bo\$18b3o\$20bo13\$41b2o\$41bobo\$41bo!
``````
So far I have not found a catalyst solution.

What will be interesting is if we can find one that produces as much gliders as are needed to build it.

### Re: Small 90 degree reflector

This mod of Dieter's partial reflector makes an extra glider.
The "bait" is reconstructed, but in a different way.
Actually it is a one-time glider duplicator that costs only one biblock to rebuild.

Code: Select all

``````x = 56, y = 21, rule = B3/S23

Dieter's reflector is shown on the right for reference.
