Diffuse reflectance characteristics were examined for sulfur, polytetrafluoro-ethylene (PTFE), a mixture of sulfur and PTFE, MgO, smoked MgO, BaSO4, fused Teflon, ceramics, kaolin, opal glass, aluminum, brass, and gold in the 1.0-2.6-micro region. Sulfur pressings gave the highest, most uniform reflectance of all materials examined. Thus, sulfur is a suitable material as a reflectance standard in the near infrared region.
