The Vibrational Spectroscopy facility at the Centre offers a range of molecular spectroscopy capabilities for material characterisation and problem solving. Our experts have practical experience analysing a wide variety of materials using Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) and Raman Spectroscopies. An extensive range of instrumentation allowing optimisation of experiment and, though a range of excitation frequencies, opportunities to overcome fluorescence often associated with biomolecular systems.
