Infrared spectroscopy is generally understood to mean the science of spectra relating to infrared radiation, namely electromagnetic waves, in the wavelength region occurring intermediately between visible light and microwaves. Measurements of infrared spectra have been providing useful information, for a variety of scientific research and industrial studies, for over half a century; this is set to continue in the foreseeable future.

Introduction to Experimental Infrared Spectroscopy is intended to be a handy guide for those who have no, or limited, experience in infrared spectroscopic measurements but are utilising infrared-related methods for their research or in practical applications.

Written by leading researchers and experienced practitioners, this work consists of 22 chapters and presents the basic theory, methodology and practical measurement methods, including ATR, photoacoustic, IR imaging, NIR, 2D-COS, and VCD. The six Appendices will aid readers in understanding the concepts presented in the main text.

Written in an easy-to-understand way this book is suitable for students, researchers and technicians working with infrared spectroscopy and related methods.

Professor Mitsuo Tasumi has been an active researcher in the field of infrared and Raman spectroscopy for over 40 years. He obtained his degrees from the University of Tokyo, and did post-doctoral work at The University of Michigan and Politecnico di Milano. He is currently president of Saitama University. He has won many awards including: The Ellis R. Lippincott Award from the Optical Society of America, Society for Applied Spectroscopy, and Coblentz Society; (Outstanding Contributions to Vibrational Spectroscopy) (1999); The Purple Ribbon Medal from the Japanese Government (Studies on Physical Chemistry) (1999); Fellow of the Optical Society of America (2000); Honorary Membership Award from the Society for Applied Spectroscopy (2004); Fellow of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy (2004).He has, or is currently servingon the editorial boards of Journal of Molecular Structure; Vibrational Spectra and Structure; Spectrochimica Acta; Journal of Raman Spectroscopy; Comprehensive Polymer Science; Vibrational Spectroscopy, a Section of Analytica Chimica Acta; Biopolymers/Biospectroscopy. He has published numerous papers and book chapters and presented the prestigious "Raman-Mizushima Lecture" in 2006.
