Paper Abstract

White and reflective screen materials were examined for their suitability as the flat-fielding screen for the Sloan Digital Sky Survey 2.5-meter Telescope. Candidate materials were found which exhibited high, uniform reflectance from 390 to 910 nm. In addition they are durable and rollable, inexpensive, require a minimum of maintenance and are not a significant source of particulate contamination.
