Double Beam Spectrophotometer

A double beam spectrophotometer compares the light intensity between two light paths: one path containing a reference sample and the other the test sample.  Samples for UV-VIS spectrophotometers are mostly in liquids form and are typically placed in a transparent cell, known as a cuvette. Advantages of using UV-VIS Double Beam Spectrophotometer It facilitates rapid […]
