The Application of Luminescence Spectroscopy to Polymer Analysis

  • Harold F. Smith


Luminescence spectroscopy is based on the energy dissipating behavior of electronic systems - atoms, ions and molecules. Luminescence, both fluorescence and phosphorescence, is the process by which energy absorbed as light by an electronic system is released by the consequent emission of light. The light emitted is uniquely characteristic of the emitting system.
