Module overview

Modern spectroscopic techniques underpin a wide range of chemical and biological research as well as serving as a valuable analytical tool. This module will introduce some of the key principles, tools and techniques that govern spectroscopic measurements and allow scientists of all disciplines to characterise chemical structure and composition, image biological samples and follow chemical reactions in intricate detail. The module will cover how these techniques can be used for both applied science relevant to biological imaging, as well as more fundamental science for measuring the motion of the atoms and electrons that drive chemical reactivity.
