The absorption curve [alpha](T) of relatively higher [alpha] values is monotonously declining over the whole range of temperatures.
As Figure 1 shows, the low-pressure mercury lamp emission line intersects the typical DNA absorption curve below the peak absorption.
Integrated absorption intensity was calculated by the integral of the entire area under the absorption curve from 1200 to 1300 nm wavelength range by using the Gadgets in the Origin Lab program.
From Figure 3, flat patterns clearly show that absorption is approximately same for samples sintered upto 300 C sintering temperature but at 400 C, there is variation in absorption curve. This sample only contains CuBO2 pure phase so it exhibits high absorption value for wavelengths at 300 nm thus confirming its optical bandgap lying in ultraviolet region.

As regards the ordinary ray, the complex eikonal absorption curve becomes overestimated with respect to the Rawer's one, that is, the absorption relative deviation is larger than 50%, when referring to the low critical frequencies ([f.sub.c0] [less than or equal to] 5.65 MHz).
However, the peak absorption curve leveled off to approximately 90% in all cases when the gold nanostructure accumulated past three layers.
The simulated peak absorption curve as a function of different incident angles for the transverse electric (TE) and transverse magnetic (TM) polarizations of the EM waves is plotted in Figure 6.
Bilirubin (with an absorption curve between 400 nm to 500 nm) appears approximately 10 hours after onset of bleeding.
It may be easily observed that the absorption curve recorded in case of the specimens immersed in water, is located below the one recorded in case of the specimens kept in seawater.
