Welcome to Advanced Experimental Techniques - Infrared and Raman Spectroscopy

Description: This course introduces participants to the theory and practice of infrared and Raman spectroscopy as applied to the study of the physical and chemical characteristics of materials and substances. Its purpose is to provide a firm foundation in the subject concentrating on the fundamental principles, exploration of modern instrumentation applied in these techniques and description of a broad range of application examples from different areas of materials characterization. In order to leave room for a large number of application examples, the theoretical part does not go into more depth than it is necessary for a beginner`s understanding. 
Hands-on sessions will be organized where the participants will carry out spectroscopic experiments on material samples provided and/or samples brought by participants themselves. Preparation of the report based upon obtained results will be required after the hands-on sessions.

Organizer: Associate Professor Lars Rosgaard Jensen, lrj@mp.aau.dk

ECTS: 3 (requires active participation in lectures and exercises and submission of a final report of sufficient quality based on the performed exercises, data analysis and the obtained results)

Time: 9-13 November 2020, 09:00-15:30



Number of seats: 20 (for hands-on exercises max. 15 participants can attend)

Deadline: 19 October 2020

Important information concerning PhD courses: We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 3,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
