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 Spectroscopy includes 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. Additionally, spectrometry of new materials, ceramics, and textiles are covered by respective experts in their fields. An appendix of practical reference data for spectrometry and an extensive index are also included. Practitioners, researchers, and students will find this book useful in their daily working activity, in teaching, and in studies.
