P. Hamm and M. T. Zanni, Concepts and Methods of 2D Infrared Spectroscopy, Cambridge, 2011

2D infrared (IR) spectroscopy is a cutting-edge technique, with applications in subjects as diverse as the energy sciences, biophysics and physical chemistry. This book introduces the essential concepts of 2D IR spectroscopy in a stepwise fashion to build an intuitive and in-depth understanding of the method.  This book is unique because it:

  • Introduces the mathematical formalism in a simple manner
  • Examines the design considerations for implementing the methods in the laboratory
  • Contains working computer code to simulate 2D IR spectra

Readers will learn how to accurately interpret 2D IR spectra, design their own spectrometer and invent their own pulse sequences.  It is an excellent starting point for graduate students and researchers who are new to this exciting field.
