"An interesting and enlightening book well worth the time for someone who is grounded in the basics of spectroscopy, yet interested in newer techniques and applications... particularly useful in providing breadth for those whose work has caused them to narrow their appreciation of spectroscopy to one area." (Spectroscopy) "This book should be on the bookshelves of all chemists whose daily work involves the practical application of spectroscopy to chemical analysis." (Fresenius' J. of Analytical Chem.) "...stands in style between an introduction to the various topics covered and near monographic treatments...meets a real need." (Faraday Transactions) "It covers an enormous amount of spectral theory and methodology in a condensed and readable format." (SIM News)

Modern Spectroscopy Third edition J. Michael Hollas, University of Reading The new edition of Modern Spectroscopy is aimed at an undergraduate audience, and is suitable for students of chemistry, physics and chemical physics studying atomic and molecular spectroscopy, lasers and laser spectroscopy, and molecular symmetry. The book introduces the reader to a wide range of spectroscopies, and includes both the background theory and applications to structure determination and chemical analysis. It covers rotational, vibrational, electronic, photoelectron and Auger spectroscopy, as well as EXAFS, and the theory of lasers and laser spectroscopy. A further special feature is the inclusion of such subjects as interferometry, supersonic jet spectroscopy and applications of spectroscopy to astrophysics. New material includes a discussion of icosahedral symmetry and its relevance to the C60 molecule, the basics of charge coupled device detectors, an introduction to zero kinetic energy (ZEKE) photoelectron spectroscopy, and simple rules for the division of the vibrations of a molecule into symmetry classes. Reformatted and designed to be user friendly, Modern Spectroscopy provides new worked examples of calculations and other problems covering a wide variety of topics. The author has many years' teaching and research experience in the field which he brings to bear in the clear writing style and wide range of topics in Modern Spectroscopy. Praise for the second edition includes: '...one is left in little doubt that this book is one which could well serve as a gold standard for specialist physical chemistry texts.' -- J. Chem. Soc., Faraday Trans. 'The book remains an excellent, up-to-date text on spectroscopy at the undergraduate level.' -- J. Mol. Struct.

This textbook offers clear explanations of optical spectroscopic phenomena and shows how spectroscopic techniques are used in modern molecular and cellular biophysics and biochemistry. The topics covered include electronic and vibrational absorption, fluorescence, resonance energy transfer, exciton interactions, circular dichroism, coherence and dephasing, ultrafast pump-probe and photon-echo spectroscopy, single-molecule and fluorescence-correlation spectroscopy, Raman scattering, and multiphoton absorption. This revised and updated edition provides expanded discussions of quantum optics, metal-ligand charge-transfer transitions, entropy changes during photoexcitation, electron transfer from excited molecules, normal-mode calculations, vibrational Stark effects, studies of fast processes by resonance energy transfer in single molecules, and two-dimensional electronic and vibrational spectroscopy. The explanations are sufficiently thorough and detailed to be useful for researchers and graduate students and advanced undergraduates in chemistry, biochemistry and biophysics. They are based on time-dependent quantum mechanics, but are developed from first principles with a clarity that makes them accessible to readers with little prior training in this field. Extra topics and highlights are featured in special boxes throughout the text. The author also provides helpful exercises for each chapter.

Astronomy in Depth is more than just a textbook. It covers pre-university level Astronomy courses (in the UK, the GCSE syllabuses) and provides numerical examples to help students, but is also an ideal introduction for amateur astronomers. Many hobbyists "pick it up as they go along" without ever properly getting to grips with the science; this book is both a prevention and cure - perfect as a starting point, and equally useful to fill in concepts that long-time amateurs have missed.

Second edition of the guide to the modern techniques that demonstrate the potential of Raman spectroscopy Completely revised and updated, the second edition of Modern Raman Spectroscopy presents the information needed for clear understanding and application of the technique of Raman Spectroscopy in a range of areas such as pharmaceuticals, forensics, and biology. The authors—noted experts on the topic—reveal how to make full use of the critical information presented and include a wealth of examples of the pitfalls that can be encountered. The text opens with a description of the basic theory to assist readers in making a practical interpretation of Raman Spectra. Chapters include the main equations that are used in order to highlight the theory’s meaning and relevance while avoiding a full mathematical treatment. Modern Raman Spectroscopy provides a firm grounding, combined with a variety of references, from which to approach a more comprehensive study of specific aspects of Raman Spectroscopy. This new edition: Includes instrumentation sections that now contain Spatially Offset Raman scattering and transmission Raman scattering Offers an updated SERS chapter that presents recent examples and Tip enhanced Raman scattering Contains updated information with an emphasis on pharmaceutical, forensic, and biological applications Introduces modern techniques in the imaging and mapping of biological samples and more advanced methods which are becoming easier to use Written for users of Raman Spectroscopy in industry, including non-analysts, researchers, and academics, the second edition of Modern Raman Spectroscopy clearly demonstrates the potential of using Raman Spectroscopy for a wide range of applications.

The 1997 European Conference on Spectroscopy of Biological Molecules (ECSBM) is the seventh in a biennial series of conferences devoted to the applications of molecular spectroscopy to biological molecules and related systems. The interest of these conferences rests mainly on the relationship between the structure and physiological activity of biological molecules and related systems of which these molecular species form part. This volume ofECSBM contains articles prepared by the invited lecturers and those making poster presentations at the seventh ECSBM. The reader will find mainly applications of vibrational spectroscopy to protein structure and dynamics, biomembranes, molecular recognition, nucleic acids and other biomolecules and biological systems containing specific chromophors. Biomedical applications of vibrational spectroscopy are expanding rapidly. On the other hand, a significant number of the papers describe applications of other methods, such as NMR, circular dichroism, optical absorption and fluorescence, X-ray absorption and diffraction and other theoretical methods. One aim has been to achieve a well balanced, critically comparative review of recent progress in the field of biomolecular structure, bonding and dynamics based on applications of the above spectroscopic methods. A great part of the contributions included in this volume are devoted to biomedical and biotechnological applications and provide a broadly based account of recent applicationS in this field. The content of this book has been organized in sections corresponding mainly to the different types of biological molecules investigated. This book includes also another section related to theoretical methods where MO calculations of vibrational frequencies dominate clearly the topic.
