  • Measurement Procedure:
    • The THR measurements were performed on a Perkin-Elmer Lambda 9/19 UV-Vis-NIR Spectrophotometer.
    • The instrument was set up in total hemispherical reflectance geometry (8 deg/t).
    • The measurement beam is well collimated (max angle) of convergence is +/- 4 deg.
    • The reflectance factor measurements were relative to packed PTFE powder per ASTM Practice E259-98 and CIE 15.2 at ambient temperature (18.5 +/- 1 deg) and humidity (70 +/- 5 %).
    • The calibration of the sample was performed at 1.0 nm intervals over the wavelength 250-2500 nm.
    • A deuterium source (300-320 nm) or tungsten-halogen (320-2500 nm) were used in combination with a photomultiplier detector in the UV-Vis and a lead sulfide detector in the NIR.
