The luminous intensity of monochromatic radiation in a given direction, [I.sub.v], is related to the radiant intensity of the radiation, [I.sub.e], and the spectral luminous efficacy of the radiation at the frequency of the radiation, K, by the equation [I.sub.v] = [I.sub.e] K.
other necessary conditions are monochromatic radiation, laser radiation, tunable to the fullest extent of the spectrum of from about 700 to 1 100 nm (nir - near infra-red), adjustable pulse energy, respectively.
The classical technique SPR uses monochromatic radiation of laser type which is perpendicularly sent on the face of equilateral glass prism, by crossing it, and gets on the opposite face where a thin golden or silver layer is deposited on, thus generating total reflection of radiation with an angle equal to the incidence one.
