UV / VIS spectroscopy uses electromagnetic waves from ultraviolet (UV) and visible (VIS) light. In addition, short-wave IR radiation (NIR) can be used. During a measurement, the light absorption of the sample, which is caused by electron transitions between different states in the molecule, is recorded as a spectrum. This can then be evaluated and interpreted.
