The Present Status of Diffuse Reflectance Theory

  • Harry G. Hecht

Abstract

A review of progress in the theoretical interpretation of diffuse reflectance spectra is given. The Kubelka-Munk solution is discussed in terms of the more general theory of radiative transfer, and the layer and particle models of Johnson and Melamed are also considered. The nature of multiple scattering processes, reflectance of non-homogeneous materials, and methods of chemical analysis are specialized topics which are discussed in some detail.
