It all started with LW and SW in the early 1990s. Today BYK Instruments´ well-known wave-scan analyzes waviness intensity with 5 wavelength ranges and evaluates the brilliance of the surface.
Thus, appearance can be analyzed and optimized based on material and / or process parameters. To keep it simple many OEMs developed their own 1- or 2-dimensional scales based on visual studies.
The latest investigation took place at VW / Audi and resulted in the evaluation of the optical profile using Fast Fourier Transformation. This new method determines one or two dominant waviness sizes and their intensity level.
In the cosmetic industry the soft focus effect is used in anit-aging creams and tinted lotions. The idea is to diminish skin imperfections and to create a natural look.
Therefore, the lotion should have a high percentage of total transmission as well as transmission haze.
The haze-gard i is used to objectively evaluate the efficiency of soft focus products.
