Getting Infrared Spectrum Evaluation Straight For Biomedical Applications

Since about 40 years, the quantity absorbance, defined by the negative decadic logarithm of the transmittance or the relative reflectance, builds the fundament of infrared spectroscopy. Absorbance is intimately connected to the Bouguer-Beer-Lambert-law which states that the absorbance increases linearly with the thickness of a sample and the concentration if the sample consists of a
