Related to Spectrometry: Infrared spectrometry


The use of spectrographic techniques for deriving the physical constants of materials.



the scientific discipline that deals with the theory and methods of measuring spectra. In the optical range of wavelengths, spectrometry embraces branches of applied spectroscopy, metrology, and the theory of linear systems. Spectrometry provides a foundation for the selection of designs of spectroscopic devices and for the optimization of design methods.
