custom darkCustom Dark Reflectance Settings

Custom dark flectance settings allow the user to input their own dark correction values when using a sample standard. This zeroes the reflectance values when taking a dark reference for color measurements whereas the custom white standard designates reflectance values of 100% across the board when referencing. This will result in a dynamic range of 0% to 100% for all wavelengths.

Optional UV Regions

The “UV regions” feature shows the different uv bands in the spectrum similar to the “visible spectrum” feature which shows the colors in the plot at their respective wavelengths.
