Spectroscopy is a powerful technique that finds applications in all branches of science and technology. It is the investigation of interaction of electromagnetic waves and matter. The electric field strength of the electric component, which is perpendicular to the magnetic component, of an electromagnetic wave at certain time t is given by:
$$ E = {E_o}\,sin2\uppi vt $$
