Abstract [en]

A spectroscopic total integrated scattering instrument, which uses a focusing sphere and a broadband light source, has been constructed. It records total reflectance and transmittance spectroscopically, in the wavelength region 400-1000 nm. Diffuse reflectance and transmittance values below 10-4 can be registered. These measurements require low scattering optical components and low noise electronics. Design details are given about the detection system, particularly the low noise preamplifier. The purpose of the instrument is to measure diffuse reflectance and transmittance spectra of interference coatings. Such spectra can give information about the amplitude of the roughness of the interfaces and reveal if the interfaces are topographically correlated or uncorrelated. Examples of spectra in both reflectance and transmittance mode are given.
