'Advance infrared and Raman Spectroscopy (AIRS)', Lochów, Poland
2012-11-16 A conference entitled 'Advance infrared and Raman Spectroscopy (AIRS)' will take place from 16 to 18 November 2012 in Lochów, Poland.
Raman spectroscopy is a technique used to study vibrational, rotational and other low-frequency modes in a system. It relies on inelastic scattering (or raman scattering) of monochromatic light, usually from a laser in the visible, near infrared or near ultraviolet range. The laser light interacts with molecular vibrations, phonons or other excitations in the system, resulting in the energy of the laser photons being shifted up or down. The shift in energy gives information about the vibrational modes in the system.
Raman spectroscopy is commonly used in chemistry, since vibrational information is specific to the chemical bonds and symmetry of molecules, providing a fingerprint by which a molecule can be identified. This technique is also used to confirm the existence of low-frequency phonons in proteins and DNA and, on a more practical basis, as a means to detect explosives for airport security.
The event will bring together scientist specialized in different spectroscopic methods, giving them an opportunity to broaden their knowledge and exchange views on latest research trends.
