Paper Abstract

The artificial reproduction of some coloration effects (for instance nacre aspect, iridescence) which appear spontaneously in the nature needs a right description of the different mechanisms which are involved in these phenomena and especially, a detailed analysis of the spectral behavior of the light scattered by such surfaces. With this aim in sight, we have developed a dedicated set-up for the recording of the reflectance distribution function of solid samples in the whole visible spectral range. We have also analyzed the different methods which are able to describe the color information for scattered light. First experimental results obtained on some organic glass windows are given in conclusion.
