We employ a physical theory to construct a computational model that accounts for both multiple scattering and absorption of light. The approach does not require a calibration model. Mie theory to describe single particle scattering, which is combined with the diffuse approximation to the radiative transfer equation to provides an analytical prediction of the reflectance. This approach is applied to experimental reflectance measurements on polystyrene particle suspensions with a wide range of particle radii and volume fractions. The method provides good estimates of the suspension properties from a full NIR-vis-UV spectrum.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
