Abstract

The present paper investigates the reflection and transmission properties of piles of nonscattering sheets. Using a spectral prediction model, we perform a detailed analysis of the spectral and color variations induced by variations of the number of superposed sheets, the absorbance of the sheet material, the refractive index of the medium between the sheets, and the reflectance of the background. The spectral prediction model accounts for the multiple reflections and transmissions of light between the interfaces bounding the layers. We describe in detail the procedure for deducing model parameters from measured data. Tests performed with nonscattering plastic sheets demonstrate the excellent accuracy of the predictions. A large set of predicted spectra illustrate the different evolutions of reflected and transmitted spectra as well as the corresponding colors for various types of piles.
