Resolution

Description

Spectral resolution is a measure of the ability of an instrument to differentiate between two adjacent wavelengths. Two wavelengths are normally considered to be resolved if the minimum detector output signal (trough) between the two peaks is lower than 80% of the maximum. The resolution of a spectrofluorometer or spectrophotometer is dependent on its bandwidth.
