spectral sensitivity, \(S(\lambda)\)

Referred to actinometers based on spectrophotometric measurements, \(S_{\text{ac}}\left(\lambda \right)=\varPhi \left(\lambda \right)\ \varepsilon\left(\lambda _{\text{obs}}\right)=\text{sensitivity or actinometric factor}\). \(\varPhi \left(\lambda \right)\) is the quantum yield of the actinometers at the excitation wavelength and \(\lambda _{\text{obs}}\) is the observation wavelength, which may be the same as or differ from the former.
