11) Nevertheless, it is important to emphasize here the advantage of measuring optical density spectra over transmittance or absorbance spectra. 2). 11) gives A ≈ 1 − (1 − OD) = OD, so that the absorbance spectrum (A versus λ, or 1 − T versus λ) displays the same shape as the optical density. 2), the absorbance spectrum gives a quite different shape to that of the actual absorption (α versus λ or OD versus λ) spectrum. Another optical absorption magnitude, which is of relevance when working with optical fibers, is the attenuation.

Saleh, B. E. A. and Teich, M. , New York (1991). , Principles of Lasers, Plenum Press, New York (1986). 1 INTRODUCTION Among other modern and interesting applications, light has proven to be a very useful tool in measuring and scanning techniques. This is particularly true in the field of optical spectroscopy, where the analysis of light–matter interaction phenomena provides fundamental information about the nature of both matter and light. 2.

Photoluminescence spectra are also often measured using compact commercial equipment called spectrofluorimeters. 8. The sample is excited with a lamp, which is followed by a monochromator (the excitation monochromator) or a laser beam. The emitted light is collected by a focusing lens and analyzed by means of a second monochromator (the emission WY062-01 WY062-Sole 18 January 5, 2005 11:28 Char Count= 0 FUNDAMENTALS Exc.
