Fluorescence Spectroscopy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


“Measuring the fluorescence of a sample” refers in common terms to measuring the emission of light emitted by substances following excitation by light. The term comprises both fluorescence and phosphorescence (emission from spin allowed or spin forbidden transitions, respectively) and relates more to the nature of the equipment used: the spectrofluorometer. “Measuring the photoluminescence of a sample” is a more accurate description of the general phenomenon of light emission upon photoexcitation and distinguishes it from electroluminescence and chemiluminescence (light emission after electrical excitation, LEDs, or chemical excitation, fireflies).
