1992; Ferber and Luther, 2001); [tau] is the lifetime of conduction band free electrons; [PHI] is the light intensity; [alpha] is the light absorption coefficient of the porous electrode; and D is the electron diffusion coefficient.
This combination of internal standards were chosen because (a) SRM 676 is the 'standard' internal standard and is being certified for crystallinity, (b) the rutile internal standards have an absorption coefficient between that of the highest (magnetite) and lowest (quartz) absorbing materials in the samples and (c) different particle sizes may yield information of particle size effects on microabsorption.
