Spectrophotometer

Description

A spectrophotometer is an instrument that consists of an entrance slit, a dispersion device (see dispersion devices and a detector for the purpose of measuring the intensity of light emerging from a sample across a given wavelength range. A light source is also necessary in order for the instrument to function, and this may be located within the instrument or from an external source using lightguides or other optics.
