The spectrophotometer is a routinely used instrument in scientific research. Spectrophotometry is the quantitative measurement of how much a material absorbs light by passing a beam of light through the sample using a spectrophotometer. The word ‘spectroscopy’ is used as a collective term for all the analytical techniques based on the interaction of light and matter. Absorption or emission of photons occurs when a molecular system undergoes transition between energy states. A graph of absorbance against wavelength gives the sample’s absorption spectrum (as shown below)

The general layout of a UV-visible spectrometer is shown in next figure below. The intensity of the reference beam, which should have suffered little or no light absorption, is defined as I0. The intensity of the sample beam is defined as I. Over a short period of time, the spectrometer automatically scans all the component wavelengths in a systematic manner.The absorption of UV or visible radiation corresponds to the excitation of outer electrons.
