These input geometries are: (1) free-field, nearly collimated laser light input; (2) laser light transmitted by single-mode fibers coupled with FC-type fiber connectors; (3) moderately diverging light from a lamp and monochromator.
The fluorescent light emitted by the molecule in the sample cell passes through a second optical filter or monochromator at a right angle to maximize the fluorescent emission and reject any scattered light.
Fine tuning is sometimes necessary to accommodate a monochromator or to compensate for the fact that certain aberrations are not completely independent [8].
