Application Note: High Absorbance Scanning with the PerkinElmer LAMBDA 850 UV/Vis and LAMBDA 950/1050 UV/Vis/NIR Spectrophotometers
15 December 2014

In materials research there is sometimes a need to scan high absorbance samples such as laser protection lenses, optical filters, and polarization materials. Such sample types often need to be measured across the whole UV, Vis, and NIR ranges of the electromagnetic spectrum. This application note describes the procedure for high absorbance scanning with the reference grade PerkinElmer LAMBDA™ 850 UV/Vis and LAMBDA 950/1050 UV/Vis/NIR double monochromator spectrophotometers.
