Holmium Oxide - UV and Visible Wavelength
The use of holmium oxide solvated in perchloric acid is an established and well recognised method for the validation of the wavelength scale of a spectrophotometer in the UV and visible regions. When prepared in perchloric acid, holmium oxide gives a spectral scan containing a series of characteristic peaks. However, these values are dependent and will vary with the spectral bandwidth of the measuring instrument (NIST Special Publication 260-120)
RM-HL: (see MSDS)
Consists of: one sealed cell, with certified peak at spectral bandwidth values of 0.10 nm, 0.25 nm, 0.50 nm, 1.00 nm, 1.50 nm, 2.00 nm and 3.00 nm.
