about

This book delineates practical, tested, general methods for ultraviolet, visible, and infrared spectrometry in clear language for novice users, and serves as a reference resource for advanced spectroscopists.Applied Spectroscopyincludes important information and equations which will be referred to regularly. The book emphasizes reflectance and color measurements due to their common usage in todays spectroscopic laboratories, and contains methods for selectinga measurement technique as well as solar and color measurements. Written by experts in the field, this text covers spectrometry of new materials, ceramics, and textiles, and provides an appendix of practical reference data for spectrometry.

  • Book topics include: Practical aspects of spectrometers and spectrometry; Sample preparation; Chemometrics and calibration practices; Reflectance measurements; Standard materials measurements
  • An emphasis is placed on reflectance and color measurements due to their common usage in today's spectroscopic laboratories
  • Methods for selecting a measurement technique are included as well as solar measurements and reference information on sources, detectors, optical fiber and window materials

Editorial Reviews

"...There is a lot of valuable information in this book, which will serve practitioners of UV-visible and near IR reflectance spectrometry well as a reference text, and researchers and students as a primer in these subjects."
--Chemistry in Britain published by the Royal Society of Chemistry - Feb. 1999, p. 47.
