Spectroscopy is the study of the interaction between matter and electromagnetic radiation. Molecules respond to different types of radiation in different ways, depending on the frequency or wavelength of the radiation. This one-semester course is designed to provide the learner with a more thorough description of the theory behind each spectroscopic technique as well as its applications. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Chemistry 205)
