w ( t ) = A 2 j e j 2 π f 0 t - e - j 2 π f 0 t .

Applying the linearity property [link] and the result of Exercise  [link] gives

F { w ( t ) } = A 2 j F { e j 2 π f 0 t } - F { e - j 2 π f 0 t } = j A 2 - δ ( f - f 0 ) + δ ( f + f 0 ) .

Thus, the spectrum of a sine wave is a pair of δ functions with opposite signs, located symmetrically about zero frequency. The corresponding magnitude spectrum,shown in [link] , is at the heart of one importantinterpretation of the Fourier transform: it shows the frequency content of any signal by displayingwhich frequencies are present (and which frequencies are absent) from the waveform. For example, [link] (a) shows the magnitude spectrum W ( f ) of a real-valued signal w ( t ) . This can be interpreted as saying that w ( t ) contains (or is made up of) “all the frequencies” up to B Hz, and that it contains no sinusoids with higher frequency. Similarly,the modulated signal s ( t ) in [link] (b) contains all positive frequencies between f c - B and f c + B , and no others.

Note that the Fourier transform in [link] is purely imaginary, as it must be because w ( t ) is odd (see  [link] ). The phase spectrum is a flat line at - 90 because of the factor  j .

The magnitude spectrum of a sinusoid with frequency f_0 and amplitude A contains two δ function spikes, one at f=f_0 and the other at f=-f_0.
The magnitude spectrum of a sinusoid with frequency f 0 and amplitude A contains two δ function spikes, one at f = f 0 and the other at f = - f 0 .

What is the magnitude spectrum of sin ( 2 π f 0 t + θ ) ? Hint: Use the frequency shift property [link] . Show that the spectrum of cos ( 2 π f 0 t ) is 1 2 ( δ ( f - f 0 ) + δ ( f + f 0 ) ) . Compare this analytical result to the numerical resultsfrom Exercise  [link] .

The magnitude spectrum of a message signal w(t) is shown in (a). When w(t) is modulated by a cosine at frequency f_c, the spectrum of the resulting signal s(t)=w(t)cos(2πf_ct+Φ) is shown in (b).
The magnitude spectrum of a message signal w ( t ) is shown in (a). When w ( t ) is modulated by a cosine at frequency f c , the spectrum of the resulting signal s ( t ) = w ( t ) cos ( 2 π f c t + Φ ) is shown in (b).

Let w i ( t ) = a i sin ( 2 π f i t ) for i = 1 , 2 , 3 . Without doing any calculations, write down the spectrum of v ( t ) = w 1 ( t ) + w 2 ( t ) + w 3 ( t ) . Hint: Use linearity. Graph the magnitude spectrum of v ( t ) in the same manner as in [link] . Verify your results with a simulation mimicking that in  [link] .

Let W ( f ) = sin ( 2 π f t 0 ) . What is the corresponding time function?

Convolution in time: it's what linear systems do

Suppose that a system has impulse response h ( t ) , and that the input consists of a sum of three impulses occurring at times t 0 , t 1 , and t 2 , with amplitudes a 0 , a 1 , and a 2 (for example, the signal w ( t ) of [link] ). By linearity of the Fourier transform, property [link] , the output is a superpositionof the outputs due to each of the input pulses. The output due to the first impulse is a 0 h ( t - t 0 ) , which is the impulse response scaled by the size of the input and shifted to beginwhen the first input pulse arrives. Similarly, the outputs to the second and thirdinput impulses are a 1 h ( t - t 1 ) and a 2 h ( t - t 2 ) , respectively, and the complete output is the sum a 0 h ( t - t 0 ) + a 1 h ( t - t 1 ) + a 2 h ( t - t 2 ) .

Now suppose that the input is a continuous function x ( t ) . At any time instant λ , the input can be thought of as consisting of an impulse scaled by the amplitude x ( λ ) , and the corresponding output will be x ( λ ) h ( t - λ ) , which is the impulse response scaled by thesize of the input and shifted to begin at time λ . The complete output is then given by integrating over all λ

y ( t ) = - x ( λ ) h ( t - λ ) d λ x ( t ) * h ( t ) .

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
