The term ‘optical spectroscopy’ refers only to the range of interacting electromagnetic radiation lying within the so-called ‘optical range’; a range that includes the visible and a small part of the ultraviolet and infrared spectral regions, at about 200–3000 nm. We improperly label this radiation as ‘light’, while this term only strictly refers to that radiation which can be detected by the human eye. The term ‘solids’ includes metals, semiconductors and insulators. Although most of the material treated in this book concerns the spectroscopy of centers embedded in inorganic materials, the principles described here are also applicable to molecules and atoms in the gaseous and/or the liquid state.
