Title: Characterization of the structure of low-e substrates and consequences for IR transflection measurements

Abstract

Spectral distortions caused by the electric field standing wave effect were investigated for two commonly used reflective substrates: low-emissivity glass and gold-coated glass. Our analytical calculations showed that spectral distortions may arise for both incoherent and coherent light sources when performing transflectance measurements. We experimentally confirmed our predictions using a commercial mid-infrared quantum cascade laser microscope and an interferometric infrared imaging system.
