Standard Test Method for Solar Absorptance, Reflectance, and Transmittance of Materials Using Integrating Spheres
|Publication Date:||10 April 1996|
|ICS Code (Solar energy engineering):||27.160|
1.1 This test method covers the measurement of spectral absorptance, reflectance, and transmittance of materials using spectrophotometers equipped with integrating spheres.
1.2 Methods of computing solar weighted properties from the measured spectral values are specified.
1.3 This test method is applicable to materials having both specular and diffuse optical properties. Except for transmitting sheet materials that are inhomogeneous, patterned, or corrugated, this test method is preferred over Test Method E 1084.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
