spectroscope

 [spek´trah-skōp]
an instrument for developing and analyzing the spectrum of a substance. adj., adj spectroscop´ic.

spec·tro·scope

(spek'trō-skōp),
An instrument for resolving light from any luminous body into its spectrum, and for the analysis of the spectrum so formed. It consists of a prism that refracts the light or a grating for diffraction of the light, an arrangement for rendering the rays parallel, and a telescope that magnifies the spectrum.
[spectro- + G. skopeō, to view]

An instrument for producing and observing spectra. It consists of a slit, a diffraction grating or a prism to disperse the radiations, achromatic lenses, and an eyepiece to observe them. See monochromator; spectrum.

Intermediate-resolution (R [approximately equal to] 12,000) spectroscopical observations of LV2 and HST10 were performed by Tsamis and collaborators [66, 67] with FLAMES and the setup already mentioned in the observation of the LV2 jet (see Section 3).
Three clerodanes were not previously described and their NMR spectroscopical data and MS fragmentation patterns are reported.
(For qualitative spectroscopical analyses, however, most experts agree that UV /Vis is a poor second-best to infrared.)
The photoelectrochemical characteristics exhibited by the complex are rationalized in terms of spectroscopical and photophysical properties measured in fluid solution.
