Shows how measurements on two, square, painted samples at a range of included angles can be used to check the applicability of a theoretical model which accounts for the effects of self-illumination and spectral leakage of a diffusely reflecting test article in luminescent paint measurements. Summary of general theory; Theory of calibration technique.

    The operating principle of immunochromatographic test systems is considered. It is noted that with the use of such tests an immunoassay is implemented as a sandwich method in the form of a direct dependence of the luminescence of test stripes on the concentration of the test substance or as a...

    An experimental method is introduced by which relative photoluminescence or photoconductance signals can be converted into an absolute excess carrier concentration. This method is demonstrated by comparison of self-consistently calibrated quasi-steady-state photoluminescence measurements with...

    In analytical Raman spectroscopy it becomes increasingly important to employ a procedure for the correction of the relative intensity of Raman spectra. The determination of the intensity response function of a Raman instrument traditionally has been carried out through a white light source that...
