Abstract

A device that can be used for the measurement of the absolute spectral reflectivity or reflectance of metals, paints, etc. is described. The unit is used in conjunction with a Perkin-Elmer Model 83 monochromator equipped with an NaCl prism for the wavelength range 1.0 to 15.0 microns. Preliminary results for MgO, polished copper, molybdenum, and electrolytic gold are presented.
