Why a spectrophotometer?

A spectrophotometer first shines a known, stable, broad spectrum white light source on the surface to be measured. It then collects the light reflected from the measured object and breaks it apart into its constituent wavelengths through a prism or something called a diffraction grating.

This “rainbow” of light is then measured and digitized using a precise sensor array at specific wavelength intervals, typically every 10nm across the visible spectrum, 400nm-700nm.

Spectral Curve

This spectral data can be used to help determine exactly what adjustments need to be made for adhering to various color standards. Uses for a spectrophotometer include measuring different pigment levels in a substance for paint formulation, or commercial printing applications, as well as many other scientific applications in biology, chemistry, food and agriculture, cosmetics, QA/QC and more.
