Abstract

A comparative study of statistical particle model theory of diffuse reflectance has been made. Theories have been applied to six particulate samples having different optical characteristics and average particle sizes that vary from 42 to 106 µm. We made an overall assessment of each theoretical model by determining the CIELAB color difference using experimentally measured and theoretically predicted diffuse reflectance spectra in the visible spectral range. We discuss the performance ratings of the models of other researchers and discovered numerous typographical errors in Fresnel reflection coefficient expressions. We provide the correct versions for these expressions.
