Science / Chemistry / Spectroscopy: Spectroscopy is analysis of the interaction between electromagnetic radiation and matter. Different types of radiation interact in characteristic ways with different samples of matter; the interaction is often unique and serves as a diagnostic 'fingerprint' for the presence of a particular material in a sample. Spectroscopy is also a sensitive quantitative technique that can determine trace concentrations of substances.

Absorption Spectroscopy

Science / Chemistry / Absorption Spectroscopy: A technique for determining the concentration and structure of a substance by measuring the amound of electromagnetic radiation the sample absorbs at various wavelengths. MORE

Infrared Spectroscopy

Science / Chemistry / Infrared Spectroscopy: A technique for determining the structure (and sometimes concentration) of molecules by observing how infrared radiation is absorbed by a sample. MORE
