Definitions for "Diffuser"
The stationary portion of the compressor which increases the static pressure or the air or air/fuel mixture. The diffuser area in a turbocharger is located between the flat section inside a compressor housing and the flat area on the backing plate beginning at the edge of the compressor wheel.
The bodywork at the rear underside of the car that controls underbody airflow as it exits the back of the car. A good diffuser generates significant downforce.
Channels under the car defined by vertical "fences" which increase the airflow beneath the car by drawing it out and improving downforce.
the part of a luminaire that distributes the light emitted by the lamp
Gauzy or translucent material that alters the quality of light passing through it. A diffuser produces less intense, flatter lighting with weaker, less noticeable shadows.

Inserts gas into water as very tiny bubbles and spreads the gas out. Generally used in smaller tanks to inject CO2
A diffuser is a device fitted over an underwater breathing set's blowoff hole to break up the resulting bubbles very small so they will not be seen from out of the water. They are mostly needed in frogman-type diving operations where secrecy is needed, and in marine biology to avoid scaring fish which are being studied. Designing an adequate diffuser on a rebreather is much easier than on open-circuit scuba.
