Definition/MeaningWord/Phrase
dark band in the spectrum of white light that has been transmitted through a substance that exhibits absorption at selective wavelengths absorption band
spectrum of electromagnetic radiation that has passed through a medium that absorbed radiation of certain wavelengths absorption spectrum
(physics) a spectrum of radiation caused by electron transitions within an atom; the series of spectrum lines is characteristic of the element atomic spectrum
electromagnetic radiation that would be radiated from an ideal black body; the distribution of energy in the radiated spectrum of a black body depends only on temperature and is determined by Planck's radiation law black-body radiation , blackbody radiation
spectrum colors blue , green , indigo , red , violet , yellow

broad spectrum semisynthetic antibiotic produced by modifying cephalosporin cephaloridine
one of several broad spectrum antibiotic substances obtained from fungi and related to penicillin (trade names Mefoxin); addition of side chains has produced semisynthetic antibiotics with greater antibacterial activity cephalosporin , Mefoxin
optical device consisting of a surface with many parallel grooves in it; disperses a beam of light (or other electromagnetic radiation) into its wavelengths to produce its spectrum diffraction grating , grating

electronic warfare undertaken to prevent or reduce an enemy's effective use of the electromagnetic spectrum ECM , electronic countermeasures
military action involving the use of electromagnetic energy to determine or exploit or reduce or prevent hostile use of the electromagnetic spectrum electronic warfare , EW
spectrum of electromagnetic radiation emitted by a self-luminous source emission spectrum
electrical device that alters the frequency spectrum of signals passing through it filter
