Spectroscopy is the technique of obtaining and recording the spectra of light sources. A spectrum is the continuum of colors (as in a rainbow) formed when light is dispersed so that its component wavelengths are arranged in order. Spectroscopy Amateur Astronomy Science.
Spectroscopy / s p ɛ k ˈ t r ɒ s k ə p i / is the study of the interaction between matter and electromagnetic radiation. (wikipedia)
- Wikipedia: Spectroscopy is the study of the interaction between matter and electromagnetic radiation. Historically, spectroscopy originated through the study of visible light dispersed according to its wavelength, by a prism. Later the concept was expanded greatly to include any interaction with radiative energy as a function of its wavelength or frequency. Spectroscopic data are often represented by an emission spectrum, a plot of the response of interest as a function of wavelength or frequency.
- Spectroscopy Category
- Applied spectroscopy - Applied spectroscopy is the application of various spectroscopic methods for detection and identification of different elements/compounds in solving problems in the fields of forensics, medicine, oil industry, atmospheric chemistry, pharmacology, etc.
- Astronomical spectroscopy - Astronomical spectroscopy is the study of astronomy using the techniques of spectroscopy to measure the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation, including visible light and radio, which radiates from stars and other hot celestial objects.
- Biomedical spectroscopy - Biomedical spectroscopy is a multidisciplinary research field involving spectroscopic tools for applications in the field of biomedical science.
- Coronium - Coronium, also called newtonium, was the name of a suggested chemical element, hypothesised in the 19th century. The name, inspired by the solar corona, was given by A. Gruenwald in 1887.
- History of spectroscopy - The history of spectroscopy began in the 17th century. Advances in optics, specifically prisms, enabled systematic observations of the solar spectrum. Isaac Newton first applied the word spectrum to describe the rainbow of colors that combine to form white light.
- Metamerism (color) - In colorimetry, metamerism is a perceived matching of the colors that, based on differences in spectral power distribution, do not actually match. Colors that match this way are called metamers.
