Abstract

Some advantages of a logarithm-of-wave-length scale for spectrophotometric absorption curves are indicated. A system arranged so as to provide 100 units per spectral octave has been found especially convenient, particularly so in connection with instruments which can plot over a number of different ranges and at different magnifications.
