The "Bi-Directional Scattering Function" BSDF of a diffuser depends on several parameters, such as surface properties, observational conditions and further. This paper describes experimental activities to achieve a better understanding about the interaction between diffuser properties and performance with regards to its scattering behavior. For this purpose a set of 24 diffusers with defined surface properties have been manufactured and systematically been investigated in a dedicated radiometric calibration measurement facility. The experimental data are compared with existing theoretical models.
