Analyzing solid-state materials through UV-Vis spectroscopy

14 Mar 2024

In this eBook, Thermo Fisher Scientific highlights the versatility of the Evolution™ UV-Visible Spectrophotometers. The instruments are effective in measuring the reflection, absorption, and transmission properties of solid materials like films, powders, and curved lenses. The interaction of ultraviolet and visible light with solid materials generates valuable information about the properties and potential utility of materials. By analyzing the degree to which light scatters off the irregular surface of a powder, or how rays of light pass through the shaped lens of an eyeglass, the real-world effectiveness of the materials can be quantified. The four applications described demonstrate their ability to perform routine measurements and generate high-resolution data while providing experimental flexibility for research and more complex applications.
