Abolute Reflectance Measurement

JASCO is a leading manfacturer of reflectance measurement systems resulting from collaborations with many leading film and semi-conductor manufacturers.

Three instruments include

  • Manual synchronous system
  • Manual asynchronous system
  • Automatic asynchronous system

The absolute reflectance measurement system performs the measurement of spectral properties for  film thickness, angle variation or other characteristics of solid samples such as semiconductors, thin films and various optical elements.

 

Synchronous Absolute Reflectance Accessory Manual Operation

The Models ARV-730/ARN-731 are designed to measure the absolute reflectance of a specularly reflecting sample and the relative reflectance of a diffuse reflecting sample. It also permits the measurement of transmittance by using an optional solid sample holder for transmittance measurement.
This attachment has an integrating sphere with detector. The angle of incidence of the sample is changed by moving the integrating sphere (in the measurement of absolute reflectance). The movable angular range of the integrating sphere is 5deg to 90deg (angle of incidence). Relative reflectance is measured by mounting the sample on the rear of the integrating sphere to which the detector is attached.

Asynchronous Absolute Reflectance Measurement Manual Operation

The Model ARSV-732/ARSN-733 manual stage for measuring the absolute reflectance and transmittance of a sample that does not diffuse light. The detector is equipped with an integrating sphere and thus it also permits measurement of the relative reflectance and transmittance of samples that do diffuse light (the sample holder for measurement of relative reflectance is standard, but the sample holder for measurement of transmittance is an option).
Absolute reflectance and transmittance are measured by rotating the sample stage to determine the angle of the light incident upon the sample and independently setting the detector in the path of the reflected light or the transmitted light through the sample. The relative reflectance is measured with light normally incident on the sample, which is set behind the integrating sphere.

Asynchronous Absolute Reflectance Measurement Automatic Operation

The absolute reflectance measurement system automates the measurement of the spectral properties, film thickness, angle variation or other characteristics of solid samples such as semiconductors, thin films and various optical elements. Coupled with  the JASCO V-Series UV-Vis/NIR Spectrophotometers, the instrument provides  measurements of challenging samples with dramatically reduced noise and excellent  photometric stability. The incidence and collection angles can be set in a synchronous  mode,  simultaneously rotating the sample stage and integrating sphere. Alternatively, the  incidence and collection angles can be individually declared in an asynchronous mode. The polarization properties of a sample can also be examined using P or S polarization or by setting the desired polarization angles.

Optional Accessories
 
ARG-476/GPH-506 Polarizer (Glan-Taylor prism)


Light from a spectrophotometer that employs a grating is always polarized. The ratio of the intensities of the S polarized light and the P polarized light varies according to the wavelength and also differs from one grating to another for the same wavelength. The greater the angle of incidence of the beam on the sample, the greater the difference in the intensity of the S polarized reflected light and the P polarized reflected light, making measurement inaccurate if the absolute reflectance is measured at a high angle of incidence. In such a case, the polarizer can be set to 45 degrees so that the incident light can be considered non-polarized. 

A polarizer is required to accurately measure the absolute reflectance when the angle of incidence of 30 deg. or greater.
