Index Absorption edge

An absorption edge, absorption discontinuity or absorption limit is a sharp discontinuity in the absorption spectrum of a substance. [1]

Absorption spectroscopy

Absorption spectroscopy refers to spectroscopic techniques that measure the absorption of radiation, as a function of frequency or wavelength, due to its interaction with a sample.

Ionization energy

The ionization energy (Ei) is qualitatively defined as the amount of energy required to remove the most loosely bound electron, the valence electron, of an isolated gaseous atom to form a cation.

Molecular electronic transition

Molecular electronic transitions take place when electrons in a molecule are excited from one energy level to a higher energy level.The energy change associated with this transition provides information on the structure of a molecule and determines many molecular properties such as color.
