#ALT# How to Measure Fluorescence Spectra

Fluorescence spectroscopy (also called spectrofluorometry or fluorometry) is a kind of electromagnetic spectroscopy, which analyzes fluorescence from a sample. It involves the use of a light beam that excites the electrons in molecules of certain compounds and causes them to emit light in a typical scenario but not necessarily, visible light.
