Educational resources

Spectroscopy resources:

Resources for spectroscopy are provided here using the University of Groningen file sharing server ( Some information is available to download by directly by clicking on the link, wherease some items are available only to the research unit or on request (use contact form). 

Useful websites

Andor Technology has mainly videos and application notes available.
Horiba has an extensive library of material for spectroscopic applications.
Cobolt lasers
Raman Shift Frequency Standards (Spectral calibration by the McCreery- group)

Software for spectroscopy

Spectragryph: The spectral handling software Spectragryph is developed by F. Menges and provides a powerful platform for analysis of spectral data using the native file formats of most of the major suppliers of UV/Vis absorption, emission, FTIR/NIR and Raman spectroscopy systems. ´╗┐
