I understand that after you calibrate the system then it can be used to test liquid samples such as oil or water. My primary goal is to quantify visible light. Can this system be used to quantify the wavelength of various lights?

Yes, although we don't have a complete method for amplitude calibration -- only wavelength calibration. What kind of things are you looking to study? @stoft has done some great work towards amplitude calibration: http://publiclab.org/profile/stoft

Hi warren, I am also curious if I can use the desktop spectrometer kit and spectral workbench in order to get transmittance data of a thin-film coated glass by comparing it with a reference such as air or a bare glass? Thanks.

You should be able to -- the subtraction tools are pretty primitive, though. We're soon (next week?) going to be launching more powerful subtraction tools in the new v2.0 codebase, so stay tuned! You can subscribe to code updates at http://publiclab.org/tag/spectral-workbench and/or on Twitter (@spectralwb)
