Abstract : An apparatus for recording the spectral luminance factor of leaves in various planes in natural and polarized light is described. The apparatus consists of a monochromator, various lenses and diaphragms, a device for gonionmetric scanning, photomultiplier, a preamplifier, and recording potentiometer. A luminance factor for barite plates, 'optical matte/black MFB,' and a green leaf of corn in natural and polarized light are presented as examples of recording.
