In these teaching-lab experiments, we describe how to use Ocean Insight spectrometers, accessories and software to better understand techniques including absorbance, irradiance, color and fluorescence.

By mixing small amounts of amounts of spices and rubbing alcohol, novice spectroscopy users can learn how to measure the absorbance and concentration of various colorful spice samples.

In this experiment, you will use a calibration light source and integrating sphere to radiometrically calibrate an Ocean Insight spectrometer system configured for measuring LED emission.
