Infrared Reflection-Absorption Spectroscopy (IRRAS)


This module addresses doctoral students in chemistry, physics, biophysics, and related fields with interest in understanding and using Infrared Reflection Absorption Spectroscopy (IRRAS). It introduces the basic theoretical and technical concepts of infrared spectroscopy in general and the specific features of IRRAS at the air/water interface. The potential of this technique as well as their applicability to polymeric systems will be discussed.


Day 1:

  • Lectures in the morning to understand the basic principle of IRRAS
  • Lab course in the afternoon to set up an IRRAS measurement

Day 2:
