What You Will Learn
Become familiar with the latest developments in FTIR. The course covers infrared microscopy, infrared fiber optics, and how gas and liquid chromatographs are interfaced to an FTIR to expand the information obtained from a sample. Also covered is photoacoustic spectroscopy, FT-Raman, and how thermal analysis techniques are interfaced to an FTIR. The course includes a 100 page textbook.
