The number of waves in a unit distance.
- Because of the nature of the integrand, v may represent any spectral variable (frequency, wavelength, wave number or energy).
- The integration variable in Eq. 1 may be any spectral variable, wavelength, wave number, energy or frequency.
- The spectra were first converted from wavelength to wave number and then fitted with a superposition of Gaussians.
