The spectral reflectance factors for sintered PTFE are traceable to the scale for spectral reflectance factor of pressed PTFE, which were established using the absolute method of Van den Akker [3] in the NIST Spectral Tri-function Automated Reference Reflectometer (STARR) facility [4].
The CIE tristimulus values for an object are calculated by combining the spectral power distribution of the illuminant with the reflectance factor of the object and the color matching functions of the observer.
The front surface reflectance factor r([G.sup.60]) captured by the detector of the spectrophotometer at [theta] = 60[degrees] can be experimentally obtained from the gloss measurements on the black specimens with different gloss values by application of Eq.

Spectral indices with reflectance factors, such as NDVI and waveband ratios based on simple combinations of visible and near-infrared reflectances, have been widely used in the past decades to monitor and estimate vegetation (Daughtry et al., 1992; Wiegand et al., 1991).
