Abstract

Fourier optics system have already been recognized as an efficient solution to measure rapidly multispectral bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) of any kind of surface with very high angular resolution. This capacity is useful to study complex BRDF behaviors in particular for anisotropic surfaces. Measurement of the BRDF polarization dependence is useful to understand better the scattering processes involved in the different types of samples. In the proposed paper we show that polarimetric spectral BRDF (pBRDF) measurements are also possible using such instruments. We evaluate the accuracy of the system using black glass surface. Examples of pBRDF measurements on different types of samples (color shifting paints, car paints and gloss reference samples) are presented.
