Excitation and Absorption spectra

  1. Jun 17, 2013 #1

    am working with luminescence spectra, including excitation and emission spectra. When you makes an initial characterization of a sample should be done first?
    an absorption spectrum?
    At what wavelength excitation should be performed to see the desired effect?
    Particularly when working with doped samples. for example in my case I work with Eu3 +. This emission is 580, 592, 614, 653, 702 nm, which should be the excitation wavelength longuitud?
    Is there a reference book on how to perform the characterizations?
    What other information can be obtained from this type of spectra?
    Thanks for any info you can give me
