Spectroscopy Matters

Why is spectroscopy important?

Spectroscopy is a technique used to study the interaction between matter and light across a wide range of wavelengths or frequencies. Spectroscopy is used in various fields of science and technology, including chemical analysis, environmental monitoring, material characterization, forensic analysis, medical diagnostics, and astronomical studies.

Why it matters

The benefits of spectroscopy are broad. It affects a vast range of unexpected things, from improving the quality of your food to the hunt for criminals. We can apply various spectroscopic techniques in virtually every area of scientific research - from environmental analysis and biomedical sciences to space exploration.

We will go deep into the technology, including discussing Raman spectroscopy, a vibrational study of matter, fluorescence, and the Excitation-Emission Matrix.

The science has come a long way. Engineers have made improvements to detectors, software, and overall design. It has affected speed, miniaturization, price, and reliability.
