A Brief Look at Optical Diffuse Reflection (ODR) Spectroscopy

August 01, 2023

In this short overview, we consider cases for diffuse reflection spectroscopy and introduce the Kubelka-Munk diffuse reflectance formula. We conclude by comparing diffuse transmittance, diffuse reflectance, logarithmic transforms of both, and the Kubelka-Munk transform for mid-infrared spectroscopy of the same sample.

Challenges of Spectrofluorometry, Part 1: Collect Data Right the First Time

October 01, 2021

Analysts using fluorescence emission and fluorescence excitation spectroscopy may encounter several common problems in their measurements. This tutorial, the first of a three-part series, provides a procedure to help avoid them.
