SCIE 630 - Applied Spectroscopy


Credit Hours: 3
Lecture Hours: 2
Lab Hours: 1

An introduction into the application of optical spectroscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance to solve experimental problems through the interpretation of observed phenomena. While enough theory will be used to explain the techniques, this course will focus on developing experimental techniques and critically evaluating collected data. Spectral qualities, such as resolution, signal-to-noise ratio, and linewidth will be explained to train students to assess the quality of collected spectra. The course also will focus on the use of UV-Visible and fluorescence spectroscopy to probe electronic excited states, infrared and Raman to elucidate molecular structure, and nuclear magnetic resonance to investigate molecular structure and reaction dynamics. The effects of molecular symmetry and structure on the observed spectra will be investigated.
