A method for determining the optical properties (transmittance, reflectance, absorptance) with respect to thermal infrared radiation, and by extension of radiation from a number of other sources, is described and demonstrated by application to polymer films. A procedure for operation of the method on a Perkin Elmer 3600 Data Station interfaced to a Perkin Elmer 580B infrared spectrophotometer is described.
