Optics, lighting and reflectors is an inherently boring subject, but John Schubert does a good job making the topic of bike reflectors understandable. He answers the question, "If all these reflectors are so darn bright and easy to see, how come the bike safety nerds insist you need active lights to be seen at night?"

Sheldon Brown's page also points to articles about lighting and reflectors by John Allen and John Forester.

I suspect most of my audience already knows this stuff (after all, you're a BRIGHT group of people {guffaw}), but hopefully you'll find these references helpful.

If you're asking about the orange reflectors from the 70s, the standards have changed since then.
