Measurement solution of reflectance and transmittance for film, lens and glass

1.Test principle of transmittance and Haze

Due to light scattering, The interior or surface of transparent or translucent materials will produce cloudy or turbid appearances, and luminous transmittance and haze are important indices to measure the transparency of the material.

Luminous transmittance is the ratio of the luminous flux transmitted by a body to the flux incident upon it .

Haze is another important parameter describing the physical properties of transparent materials, which represents the scattering ability of materials to transmitted light. Haze refers to the percent of transmitted light that is scattered so that its direction deviates more than a specified angle from the direction of the the incident beam..


 Measurement solutions for different test requirements

For different types and sizes of materials, different spectral band testing requirements, EVERFINE can provide measurement solutions for different spectral range requirement,to meet higher requirements, as follows.

1.Reflection / transmission spatial distribution measurement solution:BBMS-2000 BRDF/BTDF Measurement System

BBMS-2000 BRDF/BTDF Measurement System can comprehensively analyze the reflection and transmission characteristics of the material surface. The measurable parameters include bidirectional transmission distribution function(BTDF), bidirectional reflectance distribution function(BRDF), reflectance ratio distribution, transmission ratio distribution, total  integrated reflection (TIR) and total integrated scatter(TIS). It can be applied in many fields, e.g. optical membrane, plastic, paper, textile, glass, coating, metal and so on, to characterize the optical appearance quantitatively.In addition, the BRDF/BTDF data can be imported into optical design software for optical system simulation design.
