Hi Anatoly,
Thanks for your quick response.
Yes, I actually asked the self absorption question about CeO2 a few weeks
ago. And your answer that it is due to self absorption leads me to study
more about it and I appreciate it.
In that last question, the strong attenuation of signal occurs in the
incident angle = 0.6 o . However, when the incident angle is 3 o  under
room temperature ,air, the peak intensity is stronger than the CeO2
measured in  transmission mode, which leads me to think that no over
absorption correction needed here. And I try to  conduct the correction
which gives me crazily high (~9 after normalization) peak intensity.
This makes me further confirm that no strong self absorption effect here.
And if no strong self absorption in RT, air ,then why strong attenuation in
RT, vacuum condition(case ii in my question)?
For your answer,I am a little confused. Are you saying self absorption
occurred in only case ii or in both cases, even though the result of case i
spectrum has a higher signal than the transmission mode data?
Thank you,
Weizi
