Introduction to spectroscopy
Electromagnetic radiation, spectrum range – Visible, U.V, I.R, micro, radio, x- rays, gama rays or cosmic rays (their wavelength and energies), characteristics of EMR (wave and particle nature).
Definition of terms: frequecy, wavelength, wavenumber.
Types of spectroscopy:
(1. atomic/ molecular, 2. absorption/ emission, 3. electronic/ magnetic levels),
Theory of spectroscopy: Incident and transmitted light, excitation and relaxation process of atoms and molecules.
Applications of spectrometer/ instrumental methods of analysis in pharmaceutical industries.
