Abstract

Determining the thickness or identification of polymer materials with building a multivariate calibration model is based on the near infrared spectral information of the material. The spectrum of a thin plastic sheet is modulated by the interference of multiply reflected beams from the boundary surfaces and causes a disturbing signal component. On one hand, this yields unidentifiable samples or introduces large errors in the sample prediction set. On the other hand, interference-patterned spectra have to be excluded from the calibration set. Fourier-transformation of an interference-patterned spectrum vs. wave number leads to a Fourier-spectrum as a function of the optical path length (OPL) containing a well recognizable interference peak. After replacing these interference-components and performing an inverse Fourier-transformation, the spectra can be used for calibration or prediction. Two types of replacing were studied: the spline-interpolation on Fourier-spectrum vs. OPL and a novel method based on linear approximation between Fourier-spectra and thickness values. The effectiveness of each filtering method was tested on low-density polyethylene and polypropylene sheets.
