Abstract

Recent developments in optoelectronics and material processing techniques make it possible to design and produce a portable and compact measurement instrument for bidirectional texture function (BTF). Parallelized optics, on-board data processing, rapid prototyping, and other nonconventional production techniques and materials were the key to building an instrument capable of in situ measurements with fast data acquisition. We designed, built, and tested a prototype of a unique portable and compact multi-camera system for BTF measurement which is capable of in situ measurement of temporally unstable samples. In this paper, we present its optomechanical design.
