Abstract

Computer graphic reflection modeling techniques were used to study the surface reflection of paper. Models of the subsurface microstructure of paper were constructed and the reflection of light from these models was simulated using Monte Carlo methods. Measurements of the spatial distribution of light reflected from several paper samples were also taken. Factors studied that affect reflection from paper include formation, fiber orientation, and coating. Good agreement was found between the simulations and both the analytical and measured reflectances for the paper samples.
