The analyzer converts this polariza tion mod ulation into an am plitude mod ulation at 100 kHz that is proportional to T I /- T l.. ~ AII-A l.. (T, transmission; A, absorbance). The microwaves are as in T -S spectroscopy modulated at low frequency (say 315 Hz), so that the light intensity falling on the photodiode is doubly modulated at 100 kHz and 315 Hz. Demodulation at 315 Hz combined with suitable electronic filtering gives the normal T -S signal. "" LD-(T-S) difference signal. This procedure is illustrated in Fig.
