How can I set up and process my excitation-emission matrices properly?

I'm running EEMS on some water samples on a Horiba Fluoromax 4 spectrofluorometer. Method below. $\pu{240-580nm}$ emission, $\pu{5nm}$ interval, $\pu{1nm}$ width. $\pu{240-480nm}$ excitation, $\pu{...

Does all fire only emit light on its outermost shell?

This question is about light emission, which may overlap with physics, but I am most interested in combustion and types of flame (incandescence, petrochemical fuel flames, nuclear ractions). Consider ...

Why Atomic Absorbtion Spectroscopy is not affected by the emission of the flame and the re-emission of the element it self? [duplicate]

In atomic absorption spectroscopy we measure the absorbance of element by a light source that excite electrons to a higher energy level. After the excitation it is probable that the element will ...

What type of spectroscopy can display several vibrational energy levels around the electronic transition?

My question is illustrated as the figure. As far as I know, due to the Franck-Condon principle, the absorption spectrum is related to the ground state to the excited state with the same geometry. Here ...

How to think about absorption and emission rates and intensity for stimulated emission?

I learned Fermi's Golden Rule applied to absorption and stimulated emission and encountered the following question: Since absorption and emission rates are the same for stimulated emission, why can't ...

Photodissociated iodine laser and population inversion

Iodine molecules ($\ce{I2}$) can absorb in the visible region and dissociate into $\ce{2 I^.}$ radicals. One of the I atoms is in ground electronic state $\mathrm{^2P_{3/2}}$ and the other I atom is ...

Thermionic Emission Conservation of Energy

I am learning about thermionic emission and how it led to the vacuum tube. It is said that thermionic emission was a way to increase the flow of electrons from a signal (e.g. in a radio receiving a ...

Temperature dependence of emission lines from gases, for example, neon

Emission lines from Ne are frequently used as wavelength standards in spectroscopy. Reading around Wikipedia, I found about the Paschen law regarding the voltage required to start a discharge. My ...
