Abstract
The general design requirements of a portable reflectometer which can determine the specular reflectance properties of solar mirror materials is presented. Based on these considerations a prototype instrument was developed at Sandia National Labs. Because of the interest in this instrument, a competitive contract was placed with Devices and Services Company, Dallas, TX for the development of a commercial instrument based on the Sandia design. The operation and performance of this instrument are discussed, including the ac-curacy, stability, reproducibility, temperature response, and outdoor performance. Finally, limitations of this instrument and future developments in this area are briefly discussed.
