It has long been known in spectroscopy that light not passing through a sample, but reaching the detector (i.e. stray light) results in a distortion of the spectrum known as absorption- flattening. In spectroscopy with crystals, one must either include such stray light or take steps to exclude it. In the former case, the derived spectra are not accurate. In the latter case, a significant amount of the crystal must be masked off and excluded. In this paper, we describe a method which allows use of the entire crystal by correcting the distorted spectrum.
