reference plane

plane in which the surface of a sample or standard is placed during measurements

NOTE 1 For reflection measurements, the geometry is defined with respect to the reference plane. For transmission measurements, there is a reference plane for the incident light and a second reference plane, displaced by the sample thickness, for the transmitted light.

NOTE 2 In indoor and outdoor applications this term is used as an equivalent to "reference surface".
