Both the highly reflective white surfaces and specular surfaces minimize light loss; however, our repor t is limited to specular mater ials, which can reduce energy usage in luminaires through the way they direct and control light.
Gloss is the ratio of the intensity of the light scattered by a test surface at the angle of specular reflection compared to that from a standard specular reflecting surface under the same conditions.
