Physical Sciences & LED

  • We got to work with the spectrophotometer at the Physical Sciences Institute across the street. We measured the "count" parameter for diverse wavelengths, at various voltage intensities for the LED. We got table-like where the first column is the wavelength, the second is the "count". The voltages were from 2.1v through 3.5v by 0.1v windows. The compressed archive is attached.
  • Now, the tricky part is figuring out what exactly does "count" mean. Reading the user manual for the apparatus, I think it should be a measure calculated form the number of saturated pixels from the CCD.
