Instrument Types

We offer several categories of Murakami Instruments.

Goniometric Instruments

Goniometric instruments measure optical properties as a function of incident and detection angles. These measurements are critical for goniochromatic samples, some of which are known as pearlescents, effects pigments, or gonio-apparent materials.

Color Instruments

Color instruments measure spectral reflectance or transmittance using conventional measurement geometries.

Gloss Instruments

Gloss instruments measure specular reflection. These are not color measurements, but still very critical to the appearance of surfaces.

Haze Instruments

Haze instruments measure specific types of transmittance or translucence.

Online Systems

Online systems are designed for high-speed measurements in production environments.

We understand that these instruments represent a significant investment for your workplace. Avian Technologies will work with you to ensure that you select the right instrument to meet your needs. We will also work with you throughout the purchase and installation process.
