Spectroscopy is the study of light-matter interaction. It is one of the most powerful tools to understand the internal structure of matter, and plays an extremely important role in learning fundamental as well as advanced topics in chemistry, physics, and science in general, and research in particular. This course deals with following spectroscopies: rotational (microwave), vibrational (infrared), electronic (UV-vis), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), electron spin resonance (ESR), and Mössbauer. The course enables students to obtain a fundamental knowledge about these spectroscopies, their underlying principles, theoretical background, and important applications. The course is designed based on the following reference books, and other reliable educational resources available on the internet.

1. Fundamentals of Molecular Spectroscopy; 4th Edition: Colin Banwell and Elaine Mccash.

2. Modern Spectroscopy; 4th Edition: J. Michael Hollas.

3. Physical Chemistry; 5th Edition, P.W. Atkins.
