Description

The function provides a convenient and fast way to convert emission spectra wavelength to energy scales. The function works on RLum.Data.Spectrum, data.frame and matrix and a list of such objects. The function was written to smooth the workflow while analysing emission spectra data. This is in particular useful if you want to further treat your data and apply, e.g., a signal deconvolution.

Usage

1
convert_Wavelength2Energy(object, digits = 3L, order = FALSE)

Arguments

object

RLum.Data.Spectrum, data.frame, matrix (required): input object to be converted. If the input is not an RLum.Data.Spectrum, the first column is always treated as the wavelength column. The function supports a list of allowed input objects.

digits

integer (with default): set the number of digits on the returned energy axis

order

logical (with default): enables/disables sorting of the values in ascending energy order. After the conversion the longest wavelength has the lowest energy value and the shortest wavelength the highest. While this is correct, some R functions expect increasing x-values.

Details

The intensity of the spectrum is re-calcualted using the following approach to recalulate wavelength and corresponding intensity values (e.g., Appendix 4 in Blasse and Grabmeier, 1994; Mooney and Kambhampati, 2013):

φ_{E} = φ_{λ} * λ^2 / (hc)

with φ_{E} the intensity per interval of energy E (1/eV), φ_{λ} the intensity per interval of wavelength λ (1/nm) and h (eV * s) the Planck constant and c (nm/s) the velocity of light.

For transforming the wavelength axis (x-values) the equation as follow is used

E = hc/λ

Value

The same object class as provided as input is returned.

Note

This conversion works solely for emission spectra. In case of absorption spectra only the x-axsis has to be converted.

##=====================##
##(1) Literature example after Mooney et al. (2013)
##(1.1) create matrix
m <- matrix(
  data = c(seq(400, 800, 50), rep(1, 9)), ncol = 2)

##(1.2) set plot function to reproduce the
##literature figure
p <- function(m) {
 plot(x = m[, 1], y = m[, 2])
 polygon(
 x = c(m[, 1], rev(m[, 1])),
 y = c(m[, 2], rep(0, nrow(m))))
 for (i in 1:nrow(m)) {
  lines(x = rep(m[i, 1], 2), y = c(0, m[i, 2]))
 }
}

##(1.3) plot curves
par(mfrow = c(1,2))
p(m)
p(convert_Wavelength2Energy(m))

##=====================##
##(2) Another example using density curves
##create dataset
xy <- density(
 c(rnorm(n = 100, mean = 500, sd = 20),
 rnorm(n = 100, mean = 800, sd = 20)))
xy <- data.frame(xy$x, xy$y)

##plot
par(mfrow = c(1,2))
plot(
 xy,
 type = "l",
 xlim = c(150, 1000),
 xlab = "Wavelength [nm]",
 ylab = "Luminescence [a.u.]"
)
plot(
 convert_Wavelength2Energy(xy),
 xy$y,
 type = "l",
 xlim = c(1.23, 8.3),
 xlab = "Energy [eV]",
 ylab = "Luminescence [a.u.]"
)
