Photoelectron spectroscopy involves the measurement of kinetic energy of photoelectrons to determine the bonding energy,intensity and angular distributions of these electrons and use the information obtained to examine the electronic structure of molecules. Photoelectron Spectroscopy: Application Photoelectron Spectroscopy: Theory
If one can extract all of the vibrational information corresponds a molecule, its molecular structure can then be determined. In the field of spectroscopy, two main techniques are applied in order to detect molecular vibrational motions: Infrared spectroscopy and Raman spectroscopy. Vibrational Fundamentals Number of vibrational modes for a molecule Combination Bands, Overtones and Fermi Resonances Infrared Spectroscopy Raman Spectroscopy Raman: Theory Nonresonant Raman Spectroscopy
The smaller the value of σ, the more closely packed the data are about the mean, and we say that the measurements are precise. Calculate the deviation of the "suspect" datum from the mean you calculated above, d s . If this deviation is greater than 4 times the average deviation, then you should discard this datum.( If d s >4d, then discard.)
The first part of the course will consist of an introduction to the electronic structure of atoms and simple molecules, molecular geometry and structure, and elementary symmetry concepts. It is expected that the student already have a good understanding of periodic trends, VSEPR, Lewis dot, atomic orbitals, and some familiarity with valence bond theory, and molecular orbital theory.
