Spectrometry Explained: An Introduction to Lab Spectrometers for Your Classroom

Introduction to spectroscopy

An introduction to spectroscopy teaching techniques and resources

Prepare the next generation of scientists with hands-on access to real-world instrumentation. Teaching and practical training of spectroscopic techniques like FTIR, NMR, and UV-Visible, or elemental and structural analysis of materials are an important part of many chemistry curriculums.

Whether you are teaching introductory chemistry, organic chemistry, or advanced instrumentation courses, our spectrometers offer ease-of-use, reliable operation, and connected solutions for the modern classroom.

Explore our courses and resources to find lesson plans, videos, webinars, and products that fit your curriculum needs and ignite the scientist in each of your students.
