Band gap energy and transition type can be derived from mathematical treatment of data obtained from optical absorbance versus wavelength with Stern [18] relationship of near-edge absorption (Equation 1):
The basic structure of equipment is composed of a photometric clamp, figure 1, which has two semicircular electrodes of stainless steel sheet on each clamping die molded on glass tube, each electrode presenting a hole through which the radiation of a LED, passes on a clamping die of the clip, to a photodiode receiver, located on the other clamping die, monochromatic radiation emitted by the LED having a wavelength corresponding to maximum optical absorbance of the analyzed chemical species, the combined photometer also includes an electrical cable for connection and an electronic part.
The eNO system also relies on temperature controllers to gauge the temperature of the biosensor and gas, as well as to prevent temperature-induced shifts in optical absorbance.
Figure 5 graphically tested the optical absorbance at 280 nm versus the optical absorbance at 334 nm for the 14 lobster samples where a correlation of
Photoluminescence (PL) spectra were recorded with a Spex Fluorolog-3 spectrofluorometer and optical absorbance spectra with a Specord M-40 spectrophotometer.
The development of "ultra-sensitive photometry," a technology that allows measurement of extremely small changes in the optical absorbance of a liquid, was a seminal event in our company's history.
The use of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is desirable because they combine high conductivity, elasticity, and durability with very low optical absorbance of light.
