Measurement and Control of the Optical Properties of Paper, Third Edition

By: M. Todd Popson

This fundamental manual was created by Technidyne in support of their many technical seminars regarding the measurement and control of the optical properties of paper. The introductory content includes the basics of optical properties including the physics of light, color, brightness, opacity, gloss, residual ink, calibration standards, and more. A glossary of terms is also included for quick reference. The text is intended for newcomers to the field and for those who will benefit from a “refresher course.”
