Om boka

It has been nearly a century since Raman scattering was first experimentally observed. In current times, Raman spectroscopy has emerged as a versatile and powerful tool in a diverse set of scientific fields. Its implementation has grown markedly in the past 20 years due to technological advances and affordability of instrumentation. As such, more and more undergraduate institutions have acquired Raman instrumentation, and faculty from a variety of disciplines have
begun to utilize the technique. This has resulted in an increased number of students gaining hands-on experience with Raman spectroscopy. As its use has grown, curricular pedagogies that utilize Raman spectroscopy to investigate interesting scientific problems have continually been developed,
implemented, and publicized.

Given the recent developments in the field and inspired by similar symposia on nuclear magnetic resonance and x-ray crystallography at recent ACS meetings, the editors developed a symposium titled "Engaging Undergraduates with Raman Spectroscopy." This symposium was held at the National ACS meeting held in Washington, D.C., in 2017. It generated strong interest, and the quality of presentation and breadth of knowledge displayed by the presenters was indicative of the continual pedagogical
innovation of Raman spectroscopy in the undergraduate curriculum. The collection of chapters herein is based on the symposium, and several contributors to this book were its invited speakers. One of the main objectives of this volume is to convey the ideas discussed at the symposium to the broader
scientific community. Our hope is that readers not only learn a great deal about the uses of Raman spectroscopy but also are stimulated to innovate new ways to incorporate Raman spectroscopy into the undergraduate curriculum.

Om forfatteren

Matthew D. Sonntag was born in 1985 in Janesville, Wisconsin. After earning his B.A. in chemistry from Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, he obtained his Ph.D. in physical chemistry from Northwestern University. His research involved probing single molecules using tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy with Dr. Richard P. Van Duyne and Dr. Tamar Seideman. He began his academic career at Albright College in 2014. Working alongside undergraduates, his current
research focuses on studying the dynamics of single molecules with surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy and probing the structure and reactivity of glassy materials.
