Fresnel Reflectance
Background image of page 2
Fresnel Reflectance the surface of an object can be thought of as being an interface between air and the object material the interaction of light at a planar interface is described by the Fresnel equations when an incoming ray of light hits a surface part of the ray is reflected in the ideal reflection direction and part of the ray is refracted in the ideal refraction direction the Fresnel equations describe the fraction that is reflected from the surface (i.e., the specular component)
