Paper Abstract

A user friendly, ASTM-formatted, 2-D and 3-D Bidirectional Scattering Distribution Function software data tool for PC- based computers has been developed which quickly archives, sorts, retrieves, plots, and analyzes the data for thousands of surfaces and materials. Many of these materials are black, white, and reflective surfaces for thermo-optical applications for ground and space-based instrumentation. The software can be used as a standalone CD-ROM or in conjunction with existing, commercially available optical design software analysis/design packages. This paper describes the reasons the database was able to be completed, the features, the sources of data, and the many participants from the scattering and general optics community.
