AZ Technology's unique line of highly accurate portable and laboratory portable instruments for measuring
the optical properties of materials; specifically, solar absorption,
emittance, reflectance, and transmittance are summarized below with links to more detailed information. AZ Technology also has the expertise and experience to custom develop related instruments. Many of these instruments were developed with NASA as described in the most recent 2009 NASA Spinoff Report.
Note: terms reflectance, emittance and absorptance and terms reflectivity, emissivity and absorptivity are often used interchangeably.
