Measurement of reflected near-ultraviolet and visible radiations recorded on a two-dimensional radiation sensitive surface

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleOther


The reflection of near ultraviolet and visible radiation from an Australian native plant flower of Hibbertia obtusifolio and a spectrally calibrated grey scale were recorded photographically. Interference filters were used to filter specific wavelengths of radiation for each film exposure. The resulting images were then digitised and image analysis software was applied to plot spectral reflectance graphs for the flower, and to measure the reflectance of radiation across the flower at a particular wavelength. The results provide quantitative data about both the shape and spectral reflectance of the specimen.
