Do you have references for the equivalency of CIE inverse instrument geometries?

FAQ: “…. the schema of the principle of measuring shows other way of light (source of light -> sample -> sphere -> detector) than our Vista (source of light -> sphere -> sample ->  detector). Please can you explain me difference between both construction? difference between both results of measuring?”

HunterLab manufactures bench top instruments with two different geometry types: directional 45/0 (or 0/45) and diffuse sphere instruments, as discussed in a previous blog note. A 45/0 directional instrument illuminates the sample at a 45˚ angle from the sample surface and the detector is located 0˚ in line perpendicular to the sample surface. The inverse, 0˚ illumination and detection at 45˚, can also be used and yields equivalent measurements. The MiniScan EZ and ColorFlex EZ instruments are 45/0 instruments and the Agera is a 0/45 instrument. Continue reading
