Abstract
An apparatus was built to measure the spectral hemispherical reflectance and transmittance at variable angles of incidence. The apparatus consists of a Fourier-transform spectrometer, polarizers, and two integrating spheres. With one of the spheres, transmittance measurements can be performed, with the other, reflectance or absorptance measurements depending on the transmittance of the samples. The measurement range for transmittance measurements is from 400 nm to 2500 nm and for reflectance or absorptance measurements from 400 nm to 1900 nm. The design of the spheres and the optical set-up is described. The measurement accuracy was determined by measuring well-defined samples. Examples of measurements of different solar selective absorber coatings and anti-reflection layers are shown.
