Incident light can be reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through a sample. The way the incident light changes during an interaction with a sample is characteristic of the substance and can be measured by a spectrometer.
Incident light is light that falls upon an object. For example, if you were to shine a flashlight upon a mirror, the light coming from the flashlight is the incident light, while the subsequent light created from the mirror is reflected light.
