ATHENS, GA. January 28, 2015.

IR Courses, for the first time in over thirty years, will present its “Interpretation of Infrared and Raman Spectra” course in the United Kingdom at the University of Warwick, June 13-17 , 2016. This ever-evolving course has been held annually in the USA for over sixty years and presented in many countries, including Sweden, Norway, Mexico, Hungary, the United Kingdom, and China. Through a comprehensive five-day curriculum, students learn key strategies to interpret infrared and Raman spectra. The course combines lectures with hands-on exercises in which the students work with the instructors to interpret up to fifty unknown spectra.

“Interpretation of infrared and Raman spectra is an essential skill, not only for vibrational spectroscopists, but for the ever-growing number of chemists and lab technicians who work with and must analyze spectra” according to James de Haseth, one of the IR Courses instructors. “This course focuses on multiple aspects of vibrational spectroscopy including popular spectroscopic techniques, sample preparation, and spectral interpretation, including mixtures and polymers. The ultimate goal is to enable students to draw valid conclusions from spectra on their own and leave with a better understanding of interpretation. It is our hope this will provide a strong basis for further study and understanding.”

The course is taught by some of the most renowned spectroscopists and experienced instructors of spectral interpretation including: Dr. Peter R. Griffiths (Course Director), Dr. Robert W. Hannah, and Dr. James A. de Haseth. The UK course will feature additional lectures on polymer spectra as John Chalmers will join the team to share his expertise in polymer science and characterization.

The deadline for registration is May 27, 2016.

About IR Courses

IR Courses is a not-for-profit organization based in the United States. The corporation exists solely to provide continuing education resources for vibrational spectroscopy. In effect, the corporation is an endowment to the scientific community to ensure that continuing educational resources exist to provide instruction in vibrational spectroscopy. The course began in 1950 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and was held there annually until it moved to Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine USA in 1972. IR Courses was incorporated in 2000. The course has evolved over its long tenure and is the longest continuing course in vibrational spectroscopy. For more information, please visit
