Explanation:
diria assim.
peço desculpa pela resposta que eliminei, pois foi uma precipitação.

chama-se chopper porque é um disco rotativo cujo objectivo exacto depende da construção e do uso do espectrofotómetro.

um dos objectivos pode ser obter uma fonte luminosa intermitente como refereriu o Marcos. mas pode haver outros casos dependendo da localização do chopper. se estiver antes da amostra pode seleccionar alternadamente se o feixe vai passar na amostra ou na referência (se existir); se estiver depois pode também seleccionar alternadamente o feixe proveniente da amostra ou da referência.
