Transmittance Image

Transmittance is light incident on a sample that transmits through it. If the sample has low scatter (as with a clean, dilute solution), almost all the light not absorbed will be transmitted.

Advantages of Transmittance

  • Can be used to characterize effectiveness of samples such as optical coatings, window tinting and plastic tubing
  • Simple configuration. Setups can be assembled using virtually the same components as for absorbance measurements
  • Multiple sampling options. Choose from transmission dip probes, filter and lens holder assemblies, and other fixtures
