Emission Correction in a Fluorescence Spectrometer

When fluorescence spectra are measured in Edinburgh Instruments fluorescence spectrometers, two types of correction can be applied to the spectra; excitation and emission correction. In this blog post we focus on the role of emission correction and discuss why it is required, how it is implemented, and the effect it has on the shape of fluorescence spectra.
