Abstract:

Optical properties are determined for samples of widely used light-absorbing windshields of civil aircraft. A literature survey indicates that 1 the light absorption has little effect on visual performance in daylight, but is hazardous in twilight and at night 2 coloration may adversely affect signal perception in day and night conditions 3 absorption of erythemal ultraviolet radiation is necessary, and, for near ultraviolet and infrared radiation, absorption is desirable.
