This course brings about basic knowledge of atoms and molecules, in particular, their structure and interactions with infrared, visible and ultraviolet radiation. Various methods for studies of absorption and emission are examined with respect to experimental principles, as well as their use to provide molecular insights. The methods studied include: polarised absorption, saturation, fluorescence, infra red and Raman spectroscopy.
90 credits including Quantum Physics or Biophysical Chemistry: Spectroscopy or equivalent. Swedish for basic eligibility for higher education programmes and English A/5. Requirements for Swedish only apply if the course is held in Swedish.
Applicants in some programs at Umeå University have guaranteed admission to this course. The number of places for a single course may therefore be limited.
