The diffuse reflectance spectra of the samples were recorded from the flat surface using the purpose built contact probe attached by a fibre optic (10 mm diameter) cable to a Fourier transform (FT) NIR instrument (Antaris II, Thermo, USA).
In conclusion, NIR facilitates a fast, robust and nondestructive quantification of Ht in DBS.
The main consideration when color matching coatings intended for use in SHM applications is the influence the pigments used to match the visible reflectance spectrum will have on the reflectance spectrum in the NIR. A primary purpose here is to illustrate the use of software that can model the TSR to guide the choice of the pigments used in color matching.
