Ultraviolet (UV) and Visible Spectroscopy

  • L. D. S. Yadav


Ultraviolet and visible spectroscopy deals with the recording of the absorption of radiations in the ultraviolet and visible regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. The ultaviolet region extends from 10 to 400 nm. It is subdivided into the near ultraviolet (quartz) region (200–400 nm) and the far or vacuum ultraviolet region (10–200 nm). The visible region extends from 400 to 800 nm.
