Welcome to Advanced experimental techniques: Infrared and Raman spectroscopy (course day 3)

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.

Organizers: Lars Rosgaard Jensen and Ryszard Pyrz, Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering
