Infrared radiative properties of a polymer containing hollow glass microspheres are studied by means of the measurements of directional-hemispherical reflectance and transmittance in the wavelength range from 2.6 to 18 μm. The measurements of both total and diffuse components of the reflectance and transmittance for the normal incidence of collimated radiation are performed for several samples containing different series of microspheres of volume fraction from about 6% to 66%. The effect of the roughness of the sample surface is also studied in the experiments. Relatively strong peak of reflectance at the wavelength 4.5 μm was observed. This peak is explained in terms of theoretical model based on Mie theory calculations for single microspheres in refracting and absorbing polymer and modified two-flux approximation proposed recently by the authors for radiative transfer in plane-parallel layer of refracting and anisotropically scattering medium. A good qualitative agreement of theoretical predictions with experimental data confirms applicability of independent scattering approach even for the case of high volume fraction of microspheres in the polymer.
