Unformatted text preview: ater can vary from nearly zero to the energy of the excited molecule. Consequently, the photon energy can vary continuously over the same range and the emission spectrum is a continuum. 17. IR photons do not have sufficient energy to cause photoemission from the cathode of a photomultiplier. 18. The iodine prolongs the life of the lamp and permits it to operate at a higher temperature.
