Our part two of the "FT-IR Spectroscopy in Academia" series is all about physics. Xia Stammer starts by introducing the technical principles of FT-IR spectroscopy. She explains how an interferometer works and how we can use its capabilities to answer typical, unusual and of course difficult questions in physics. Our presenter will then give an overview of the applications of FT-IR spectroscopy in physics.
Dr. Xia Stammer studied physical chemisty at Ruhr-Uni Bochum and KIT with a focus on surface functionalization and characterization.
Dr. Simon Hugo Schlindwein studied chemistry at the University of Stuttgart with a focus on organic phosphorus and sulfur chemistry.
