Rendering Diamonds

  title={Rendering Diamonds},
  author={Yinlong Sun and F. David Fracchia and Mark S. Drew},
Fascinating colors of diamonds are generated by a combination of mechanisms including Fresnel reflection, volume absorption and light dispersion. This paper proposes an approach to unify these mechanisms to synthesize realistic computer images of diamonds. Our work is based on a composite spectral model that accounts separately for smooth components and spikes in spectra. While sufficiently handling smooth spectra involved in Fresnel reflection and volume absorption, the composite model offers… CONTINUE READING
