Sample presentation is a critical part of any spectroscopy measurement. Dynamic sampling is a technique where rotational or linear motion is used to measure an “average” signal. This removes localized variance from the results, improving measurements of inhomogeneous samples such as grains, feed and soil.
Dynamic sampling is also a great way to improve the consistency of any measurement — in color applications, for example, or in UV-Vis reflectance setups. It is a simple yet powerful way to improve the repeatability and accuracy of your spectroscopic measurements. Ocean Optics has a range of dedicated accessories — including probes and other sampling devices — that make dynamic sampling easy to do for solid or liquid samples.
