Figure 3 Explanation
- At t=0 min, we see a max emission far to the left of the other emission spectra.
- At t=6 min, this maximum has shifted up and to the right.
- Until t=39 min, the maximum for each spectra decreases until the shown maximum.
- After t=39 min, the maximum begins increasing again.
- At t=96 min, the maximum continues to increase, but the "shoulder" seen at around 475 nm begins going away.
- t=180 shows the final full spectra obtained.
