By Jose Solé, Luisa Bausa, Daniel Jaque

This functional consultant to spectroscopy and inorganic fabrics meets the call for from academia and the technology group for an introductory textual content that introduces the various optical spectroscopic ideas, utilized in many laboratories, for cloth characterisation.

  • Treats the main uncomplicated features to be brought into the sphere of optical spectroscopy of inorganic fabrics, allowing a scholar to interpret basic optical (absorption, reflectivity, emission and scattering) spectra
  • Contains basic, illustrative examples and solved exercises
  • Covers the idea, instrumentation and purposes of spectroscopy for the characterisation of inorganic fabrics, together with lasers, phosphors and optical fabrics resembling photonics

This is a perfect beginner’s consultant for college kids with a few prior wisdom in quantum mechanics and optics, in addition to a reference resource for pros or researchers in fabrics technological know-how, particularly the starting to be box of optical materials.

4 LUMINESCENCE Luminescence is, in some ways, the inverse process to absorption. We have seen in the previous section how a simple two-level atomic system shifts to the excited state after photons of appropriate frequency are absorbed. This atomic system can return to the ground state by spontaneous emission of photons. This de-excitation process is called luminescence. However, the absorption of light is only one of the multiple mechanisms by which a system can be excited. In a general sense, luminescence is the emission of light from a system that is excited by some form of energy.

In fact, the reflectivity, R(ν), and the absorption spectra, α(ν), can be interrelated by using the so-called Kramers–Kr¨onig relations (Fox, 2001). 12) where I R is the reflected intensity. Reflectivity spectra can be registered in two different modes: (i) direct reflectivity or (ii) diffuse reflectivity. Direct reflectivity measurements are made with well-polished samples at normal incidence. Diffuse reflectivity is generally used for unpolished or powdered samples. 7 shows the experimental arrangements for measuring both types of spectra.
