Title:SPECTROSCOPY FOR THE MASSES
Author(s):Le Roy, Robert J.

Subject(s):Mini-symposium: Spectroscopy in the Classroom
Abstract:Undergraduate students in all areas of science encounter one or more types of spectroscopy as an essential tool in their discipline, but most never take the advanced physics or chemistry courses in which the subject is normally taught. % begin{wrapfigure}{l}{0pt} vspace{-55mm} includegraphics[scale=0.80]{chem209-fig.eps} vspace{-95mm} end{wrapfigure} % To address this problem, for over 20 years our department has been teaching a popular Introductory Spectroscopy course that assumes as background only a one-term introductory chemistry course containing a unit on atomic theory, and a familiarity with rudimentary calculus. This survey course provides an introduction to microwave, infrared, Raman, electronic, photoelectron and NMR spectroscopy in a manner that allows students to understand many of these phenomena as intuitive generalizations of the problem of a particle in a 1-D box or a particle-on-a-ring, and does not require any high level mathematics.
