Molecular Spectroscopy Solutions for Research and Development

What is Molecular Spectroscopy?

Molecular Spectroscopy is a subcategory of spectroscopy that studies the interaction of radiation with molecules and extended materials, as opposed to atomic spectroscopy techniques which deal with individual atoms. Samples that absorb (UV-vis spectroscopy), emit (Photoluminescence spectroscopy), or in elastically scatter (Raman spectroscopy) radiation may be studied by Molecular Spectroscopy techniques to obtain information on their electronic and vibrational transitions.

Molecular spectroscopy is widely used within chemical, physical and biological industries. Edinburgh Instruments Molecular Spectroscopy instrumentation is capable of serving the most demanding needs of research within those areas.
