HOW SPECTROPHOTOMETER WORKS?
In order to accurately understand how does a spectrophotometer work, the first thing you need to understand is how color functions. This is a wide topic, so for this article, let’s have a fast overview. Color consists of wavelengths of light and we can split it into six categories:• X-rays• Ultraviolet• Visible light• Infrared• Microwaves• Radio wavesYou […]
WHAT IS A SPECTROPHOTOMETER?
Did you know the color can be measured? Spectrophotometers are devices made for that purpose– to capture and assess color. As a portion of a color control program, product owners and inventors use them to stipulate and connect colors, and industrialists use them to screen color correctness through manufacture. Spectrophotometers are able to measure almost anything, from liquids […]

The third and final part is finally here. We’ve gathered 3 more tips for spectrum measurement, and we conclude the series with this part. Hopefully, spectrometers won’t be that scary for you after reading this. 8. Watch out for RBW settings The determination transmission capacity (RBW) control goes about as a channel permitting you to separate amongst wide […]
TIPS FOR IMPROVING SPECTRUM MEASUREMENT – PART 2
We’ve started a new series of articles, this time about spectrum measurement. The second part brings four more tips to ease your everyday tasks with spectrometers. Enjoy! 4. Locating signals can be crucial Utilizing a directional radio wire, the signal quality capacity on analyzers can empower you to characterize a particular signal inside a band of intrigue. […]
TIPS FOR IMPROVING SPECTRUM MEASUREMENT – PART 1
The things are changing. Spectrum is getting more and more crowded, so detecting a single source can be challenging sometimes. It is crucial that people measuring spectrums are equipped with the best hardware as well as software solutions for spectra measurement. We have prepared 10 tips to help you improve your experience while measuring the spectrum. […]
LIGHT AND SPECTRA MEASUREMENT IN MICROCLIMATES
Photosynthesis is something we’ve all learned about back in elementary school, and, of course, the fundamental part of it is sunlight. Because it impacts plants so much, some farmers have started using technology to measure the quality and quantity of light in order to get the best possible results from their crops. No, we cannot […]
THE BASICS OF OPTICAL SPECTRUM ANALYSIS
The measurement and analysis of any optical signals is not an easy task, and probably the hardest one is spectrum analysis. However, engineers and scientists gain valuable information from it, and that’s why the good spectrometer is an important factor for every project that requires spectrum measurement. You’re probably wondering how does such a device […]
READYDAQ FOR SPECTROMETERS AND SPECTRA MEASUREMENTS
ReadyDAQ has very recently released a brand new software designed especially for spectrometers. Although this specific spectrum measurement software can be applied in a lot of industries, it is best used in fiber optic communications, laser pointer production and development, CD, DVD, Blu-ray Discs reading and recording technologies, laser printing, laser scanning, barcode reader technologies […]
WHAT IS SPECTRUM MEASUREMENT AND HOW IS IT DONE?
Spectrum analyzers, according to Wikipedia, “measure the magnitude of an input signal versus frequency within the full frequency range of the instrument. The primary use is to measure the power of the spectrum of known and unknown signals.“ Now you probably want that translated into English, right? In other words, the light goes through or […]
