Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the basic principles of infrared and Raman spectroscopy. The chapter reveals that all light, including infrared, is classified as electromagnetic radiation and consists of alternating electric and magnetic fields. In quantum theory, radiation is emitted from a source in discrete units called photons. Photons of specific energy may be absorbed by a molecule resulting in a transfer of energy. The molecular motion that results from characteristic… Expand
