3. 1. Light Sources CD measurements, by virtue of the large background absorbance, place severe constraints on the characteristics of the probing light source. ), the usable wavelength region (that is, the wavelength region over which the source can maintain some minimum level of spectral radiance), and the stability of the source. The fact that CD is inherently a background limited measurement sets the minimum level of output radiance. Further, for routine measurements over the range of CD applications cited earlier, source stability must be at the 50 ppm level in order to be able to differentiate the subtle changes indicative of the CD measurement from random fluctuations in the background.

Cotton also investigated the use of ellipticity measurements for CD studies. The combination of a linear polarizer and a Fresnel rhomb was used by Cotton to produce polarized light which could vary in its orientation from circular to elliptical. A second linear polarizer was then used to monitor changes in the orientation of the major axis of the ellipse which occurs as a result of the CD. In addition, the apparatus could also be used to measure optical rotation (circular birefringence). The experimental simplicity of this approach relative to his other system allowed more sensitive measurements to be made.

However, for saturated hydrocarbons which are optically active, this is the region where they absorb and where the CD must be monitored. The synchrotron-basedCD system demonstrated a mass limit of detection in the nanogram range for optically active hydrocarbons, which is adequate for many important applications. The only limitation to extensive application of this approach for CD measurements in the W V is the restricted availability of the synchrotron source. The combined system demonstrated a mass detection limit of 3pg of Ltryptophan.
