This review article highlights progress in understanding the optical properties of paper. Paper’s appearance can be defined in terms of its opacity, brightness, color, fluorescent properties, gloss, and various quantities related to its uniformity. The phenomena that give rise to paper’s optical properties, especially its ability to scatter and absorb visible light, are highly dependent on paper’s structure and its chemical composition. In an effort to engineer low-cost products having relative… Expand

Influence of paper surface characteristics on digital printing quality
Abstract Today’s demands for high quality digital printing emphasise the importance of paper surface. This work demonstrates the effects of surface topography and appearance on printing quality.Expand
Roughness and Scatter in Optical Coatings
The measurement of light scattering from optical components has received increased attention in the last decade. In addition to being a serious source of noise, light scattering can lead to a reducedExpand
Investigating the effect of paper properties on color reproduction of digital printing
Abstract Digital printing is affected by several parameters including printer and paper type which determine the final printed color gamut and the quality of reproduction. For investigation of thoseExpand
Optical transparency of paper as a function of moisture content with applications to moisture measurement.
TLDR
A novel method for moisture content measurement whose operating principle is the strong correlation between the optical transparency of paper and its moisture content is presented, finding that for all paper types, the paper transparency increased monotonically with the moisture content. Expand
Materials properties of paper as influenced by its fibrous architecture
Abstract The properties of paper are highly dependent on those of the natural fibres from which the sheet is made and their interaction, as determined by the structure of the sheet. The nature ofExpand
MATERIALS FOR SECURITY ELEMENTS USED IN PROTECTED DOCUMENTS , OPTICAL EXAMINATION METHODS . A REVIEW
Each protected document contains a set of security elements, such as paper, inks, stamps, diffractive elements etc., which ensures its protection. It means a complex document protection features,Expand
KUBELKA-MUNK THEORY IN DESCRIBING OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF PAPER (II)
One of the greatest simplifications of the transfer equation is where all incident and scattered light is assumed to be perfectly diffuse, only two opposite directions of light transport areExpand
FUNDAMENTAL STUDY FOR QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE FLUORESCENT WHITENING AGENT (FWA) CONTENT OF PAPER AND PROCESS WATER
Fluorescent whitening agents (FWAs) are the most widely used functional chemicals for the manufacture of printing and writing grades of paper. FWAs are used as internal or external additives for theExpand

Optical Properties of Paper
The optical properties of paper are extremely important for many of its uses, especially when paper is used for printing. The important optical properties include reflectance and opacity. It isExpand
Using classical theory to design a pigment with improved optical properties
Ground calcium carbonate is a common coating pigment for paper offering technical and economical advantages. Its high brightness often reduces opacity. This requires adding pigments with highExpand
The measurement of optical unevenness
The quality of printing papers is known to be an important factor in the visual "roughness" or optical unevenness which is frequently the basis for printing complaints. Even though the ultimateExpand
The calibration of instruments for the measurement of paper whiteness
The pulp and paper industry traditionally measures a property called ISO-brightness based on a filter function with an effective wavelength of 457 nm, but this is not a satisfactory measure of theExpand
ISO brightness : A more complete definition
Over the years, several methods for measuring brightness have been developed and used as standards. New instrumentation and an increase in the use of fluorescent whitening agents added to theExpand
Local grammage distribution and formation of paper by light transmission image analysis
A method based on light transmission coupled with computer-based image analysis has been developed for determining the distribution of local grammage and hence the formation of paper. This techniqueExpand
Applying brightness, whiteness, and color measurements to color removal
Brightness measurements alone are not enough to evaluate how efficiently color is removed from pulp. Whiteness measurements and color data are also needed but are more difficult to interpret. CIEExpand
ISO brightness of fluorescent papers and indoor whiteness : proposal for illuminant
The appearance of any object depends on the illuminating and viewing conditions. The International Lighting Commission (CIE) has defined relative power distributions of various standard illuminants.Expand
A new may of measuring the effect of fluorescent whitening agents
TLDR
A fully automatic means of adjusting and calibrating the instrument to simulate three different standard sources of illumination to facilitate more extensive analysis of the effect of fluorescent whitening agents than was previously possible. Expand
Light-scattering of coatings formed from polystyrene pigment particles
Abstract Coatings prepared from polystyrene latex particles of different sizes (0.03–1.01 μm in diameter) were tested for light-scattering efficiency. The variation of the light-scatteringExpand
