Comparison between angularly and spectrally resolved gloss measurements with gloss measurements carried out on a national reference goniometer for gloss calibration



Andree R. Charriere, Maria E. Nadal, Clarence J. Zarobila


The present work consists in developing a procedure which will allow to compare gloss values obtained from an angularly and spectrally resolved Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) measurement and gloss values measured with a national reference goniophotometer. The gloss measurements will be performed on the Goniometer for Specular Gloss Calibration available at the Sensor Science Division of the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST), whereas the BRDF measurements will be conducted on the Five-Axis Goniometer for Color & Appearance also available at the same division of NIST.
