Abstract

A method for measuring diffuse reflectivity using cubic cavity based on the variable port fraction method was developed by measuring oxygen P11 line at 762 nm using tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy. An experimental method to determine the additional path length l0 was presented. We measured the diffuse reflectivity of a cubic cavity with scattering coatings of different thickness. The error of diffuse reflectivity was reduced from 0.004 to 0.0003 when the diffuse reflectivity increased from 0.867(4) to 0.9887(3). A simulation result manifests that the error of diffuse reflectivity has the potential to be further reduced at higher diffuse reflectivity.
