Abstract

Refractive-index data are important for the prediction of light scattering from spherical pigments. Reflectance from a slurry that contains plastic pigments was studied with the aid of a reflectometer. The effective refractive index of spherical plastic pigments in a slurry was determined by use of reflectance data and a phase-retrieval procedure based on the maximum-entropy method. This method provides a simple way to estimate the effective refractive index of pigments in a liquid matrix.
