Syllabus -

The course is divided into following parts:

- design of infrared spectrophotometers - dispersive and FTIR;

- sample handling in infrared spectroscopy, conventional and reflectance techniques (ATR, DRIFTS, RAIRS, specular reflectance), infrared microspectroscopy and microscopy, photoacoustic spectroscopy, MID and NIR spectroscopy, hyphenated techniques, etc.;

- design of Raman spectrophotometers, sample handling in Raman spectroscopy;

- resonance Raman techniques (RRS, SERS, SERRS);

- IR and Raman imaging

- non-linear Raman spectroscopy techniques (CSRS, SRGS, IRS, CARS);

- interpretation of vibrational spectra of crystals, site group analysis, factor group analysis, etc.;

- selected applications of vibrational spectroscopy.
