Robust commercial diffuse reflector for UV-VIS-NIR applications. Academic Article uri icon


  • We report the development and testing of a new commercially available diffuse reflecting material with reflectivities in the visible comparable to industry-leading products. This new diffuse reflector consists of solid quartz in which there is a dense distribution of tiny pockets of air. The multiple reflections by the quartz-air interfaces of these air pockets transforms a highly transmissive base material into a highly diffuse reflecting material.
