F4E and ASE Optics Europe have developed an innovative optical prototype system dedicated to the measurement of the backscattered reflectivity of objects which are too large or dangerous to be used in traditional BRDF measurement instrumentation. Promising applications in optical characterization are now considered.
- measures the reflectivity of extremely large objects with 100dB dynamic range at a wavelength of 800nm and 86dB dynamic range at 1550nm;
- characterisation within an hour with 2000 data points taken at even solid angles;
- could be used for back-reflectivity measurements of large components in aerospace, energy, industry or automotive.
