Aim of course

This course shall introduce the fundamentals of modern infrared and Raman spectroscopy as well as demonstrate areas of application in chemical research and production.

Subject of course

Comparison of basic fundaments of infrared and Raman spectroscopy and discussion of resulting strengths and weakness of these complementary techniques in chemical research and production. Working principle of FT spectrometers (rapid-scan, step-scan). Introduction to basic sampling strategies of IR (transmission, ATR, external reflection, diffuse reflection, photo-acoustic, microscopy including FPAs) and Raman spectroscopy (fiber optics, Raman spectroscopy (fiber-optics, microscopy) using examples from (bio)chemical research as well as material characterisation and analysis. Introduction to the analysis of vibrational spectra using PCA, MCR and 2DCoS. Selected recent developments (Imaging, miniaturization, combination with other techniques as integration of AFM and Ramanmicroscopy).
