Bibliography about gloss, sparkle and BRDF measurement
References to literature about BRDF measurement on different surface effects, e.g. gloss, sparkle, white standards have been added to the References page.
You can either use the list with bibliografy or use the reference database about measurement of appearance attributes.
Please find below a link to an online survey intended for industries making surface reflectance or colour measurements. If this is relevant for you, we appreciate your filling out the survey, which shouldn’t take more than a few minutes. The information we gather will be used to help CIE decide next steps with regard to standards, guidance and training.
The survey will remain open until 31 July 2017.
