Absorption of Light

Definition: Absorption is the transformation of the photon energy from electromagnetic radiation (such as visible or near-infrared light) into another form of internal energy by an atom or a molecule. In an absorbing medium, absorption reduces the amount of light as the light passes through the medium.Definition: Absorption is the transformation of the photon energy from electromagnetic radiation (such as visible or near-infrared light) into another form of internal energy by an atom or a molecule.
