High Resolution Goniophotometer and Its Use to Measure Appearance Properties and Light-Scattering Phenomena

  • Richard S. Hunter


This paper describes a tool which has been designed primarily for investigating the appearance properties of objects. Specifically, this tool is used to measure and plot automatically those aspects of object appearance associated with the geometric manner in which these objects reflect or transmit light.
