Application Note

Acquisition of High Quality Transmission Spectra of Ultra-Small Samples Using the LAMBDA 950 UV/Vis/NIR and LAMBDA 850 UV/Vis Spectrophotometers

The measurement of very small samples in transmission mode often poses problems. Large-scale losses of energy, scattered light and high backgrounds all impose severe performance requirements on UV/Vis and UV/Vis/NIR instruments. Using small beam apertures can lead to high background absorbance levels, often well over 2A.

Directional Reflection Measurements on Highly Reflecting Coatings

We developed spectrophotometry accessories for measuring absolute reflection on highly reflecting samples, not only at near-normal incidences but also at oblique incidences for incident angles up to more than 80 degrees. The accessories are designed for use with a high performance UV/Vis/NIR industrial spectrophotometer and are widely used for the accurate characterisation of mirrors.

High Absorbance Scanning with the PerkinElmer LAMBDA 850 UV/Vis and LAMBDA 950/1050 UV/Vis/NIR Spectrophotometers

In materials research there is sometimes a need to scan high absorbance samples such as laser protection lenses, optical filters, and polarization materials. Such sample types often need to be measured across the whole UV, Vis and NIR ranges of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Measurement of Total Solar Reflectance of Paint Panels using PerkinElmer UV/Vis NIR Spectrophotometers and UV WinLab Software

Paint manufacturers are interested in the reflectivity of their products. This characteristic involves properties in both the visible region where color is important as well as extending into the Near Infrared (NIR) region where the properties of the paint with respect to solar radiation are important. In particular, the most important aspect is the degree of reflectivity.

The Use of UV/Vis/NIR Spectroscopy in the Development of Photovoltaic Cells

UV/Vis/NIR spectroscopy is used to study the optical properties of photovoltaic cells. The various phenomena involved (reflectance, transmittance, absorbance) are considered along with the equipment required to measure them. The study is based on a silicon cell and involves calculations to determine its selective reflectivity.

Case Study

A Spectroscopic In Vitro Method for the Calculation of Sunscreen SPF Values

Sunscreen protects skin by either absorbing or reflecting the harmful ultraviolet rays, preventing them from reaching the skin. Using sunscreen while exposed to the sun can greatly reduce the chances of damaging skin cells, and developing cancer. For this study the PerkinElmer® Lambda™ 1050 equipped with a 150 mm integrating sphere will be use to collect scatter transmission data for sunscreen placed on a tape substrate. Testing sunscreen on a tape model of human skin to calculate the SPF value is more convenient and economical than testing on human skin.
