Example of Reflectance Measurement Using Integrating Sphere -Difference Between Diffuse Reflectance and Diffuse + Specular Reflectance Measurements-

Reflectance measurements using UV spectrophotometers are utilized in a wide variety of fields. The integrating sphere is a spectrophotometer accessory that is particularly effective for analyzing samples that do not have shiny surfaces. Integrating spheres are generally used to measure diffuse reflectance. In addition, it can be also applied to measure diffuse plus specular reflectance by changing the angle of the light irradiated to the sample. This Application News introduces examples of measuring samples with different surface conditions, using diffuse reflectance, and diffuse + specular reflectance.
