Spectral comparison tutorial for amateur astronomers

by warren | March 02, 2011 18:08 02 Mar 18:08 | #108 | #108

A tutorial on "how to superimposed spectra and to make sure the comparison is scientifically relevant by normalizing the intensity"

It uses free software (as in beer) -- maybe it'd be useful for us.

@mathew - just dug up this old note, which shows a method for equalizing area. I'd love to find more literature on the subject, but it's worth a try!

We could/should also try to record a series of fluorescence spectra for a single sample at different intensities, to see if we can equalize them to be roughly the same with this technique.
