The 1E3 papers for the high values

Based on recent work carried out by Rein, there are three 1E papers.

1E3a: Symmetric mesh, rectangular grid, clear porous paper. It has the same configuration as the 1E1, but is a bright white paper.

1E3b: cloudy paper with asymmetric or symmetric mesh, rectangular grid
