Spectroscopy Testing

Spectroscopy is the interaction of radiated energy with matter, resulting in absorption, reflection or scattering – it is the technique of splitting light into its constituent wavelengths, in much the same way as a prism splits light into a rainbow of colours. The energy levels of electrons in atoms and molecules are quantised, and the absorption and emission of electromagnetic radiation only occurs at specific wavelengths.

We can use spectroscopy to determine the structure and functional groups in organic compounds.

The Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectrometer makes use of step-scan to perform FTIR spectroscopy experiments. Advanced FT-IR spectroscopy experiments with our equipment allows measurements to be made as an explicit function of time, phase, or space. Typical applications of step-scan FT-IR can be classified into two primary categories: time-resolved spectroscopy (TRS) for studying fast kinetic processes, and phase-resolved spectroscopy (PRS) for modulation experiments.
