Optics and photonics — Spectroscopic measurement methods for integrated scattering by plane parallel optical elements

This document specifies procedures for determining the spectroscopic forward scattering characteristics of coated and uncoated optical surfaces over a specified wavelength range between 350 nm and 850 nm using a double-beam spectrophotometer with an integrating sphere. This document is also applicable to the forward scattering properties at a single wavelength.

This document is applicable to spectroscopic forward scattering measurements with collection angles larger than 2,7 degrees. ISO 13696 provides a measurement method for smaller collection angles.
