After passing the course the student should be able to:
describe the construction and function of the instrumental components for different spectroscopic techniques
utilize flow systems for sample introduction and sample preparation
predict how changes in instrumental parameters will influence the measurements with the different techniques
perform theoretical calculations related to the techniques discussed
evaluate the applicability of the different techniques to solve analytical problems
Analytical aspects of common spectroscopic techniques used in analytical chemistry. Instrumentation and practical aspects of atomic and molecular absorption and emission spectroscopy. Use of flow systems within analytical chemistry.
Lectures and/or seminars. Laboratory work.
A written exam is given at the end of the course and represents 2.5 credits. The laboratory work represents 2.5 credits. The final grade corresponds to a weighted average of the written examination and the laboratory results.
