haze

cloudy appearance due to contrast reduction, usually attributable to light scattering

Note 1 to entry: Correlated measures in reflection are:
a) scattering of light at the glossy surface of a specimen responsible for the apparent reduction in contrast of objects viewed by reflection at the surface;
b) percentage of reflected light scattered by a specimen having a glossy surface so that its direction deviates more than a specified angle from the direction of specular reflection.

Note 2 to entry: Correlated measures in transmission are:
a) scattering of light by a specimen responsible for the apparent reduction in contrast of objects viewed through it;
b) percentage of transmitted light that is scattered so that its direction deviates more than a specified angle from the direction of the incident beam.
