"For a scientist with a solid math and chemistry background, this is an excellent book on spectroscopy. Highly recommended." CHOICE
"This text bridges the gap between the basics and cutting edge applications of electronic spectroscopy at a level appropriate for upper-level undergraduates and junior graduate students...clearly written and easily digested." - Journal of the American Chemistry Society, Caroline Chick Jarrold, Indiana University
Electronic and photoelectron spectroscopy provides extraordinarily detailed information on the properties of molecules. Applications extend beyond spectroscopy into important areas such as chemical dynamics, kinetics and atmospheric chemistry. This book aims to provide the reader with a firm grounding of the basic principles and experimental techniques employed in electronic and photoelectron spectroscopy. A major and unique feature is the extensive use of Case Studies to illustrate how spectra are assigned and how information can be extracted. The book is aimed at advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying courses in spectroscopy.
