Introduction to Spectroscopy (CHE2117.01)

Fortune Ononiwu

The interrogation of matter with various forms of electromagnetic radiation provides scientists with a detailed view of atomic and molecular structure. This introductory course in physical science will examine the nature of light and how it can be used to investigate the structure of matter. No previous work in the physical sciences is necessary. Topics to be covered will include visible, infrared, fluorescence, atomic, and nuclear magnetic spectroscopy. Students will have periodic problem sets and an independent project in which they research some aspect of spectroscopy or its applications of personal interest.

Learning Outcomes:
Students will learn:
- the various regions of the electromagnetic spectrum and what physical processes each can initiate
- how to analyze various types of spectroscopic data
- the fundamentals of spectroscopic instrumentation
