Spectroscopy in a suitcase

Greetings fellow Scientists!

Today we had an exciting opportunity to work with a scientist from the University of Greenwich. We explored a fascinating branch of Science, namely spectroscopy.

Spectroscopy is the study focusing on the analysis of the interaction between matter and electromagnetic radiation. We had a chance to analyse multiple samples, identify various functional groups and finally identify the substance we were testing.
