Session 1: The Basic Physics of Spectroscopy - Light-Matter Interaction for Fun and Profit

In this session, we’ll cover concepts fundamental to understanding common optical spectroscopy methods. Specifically, we’ll talk about how light - an electromagnetic wave – passes through, bounces off of, gets absorbed by, and is made by, atoms, molecules and solids. This session in no way replaces a long and rigorous course of study but tries to show a physical model of the language we use to describe spectroscopy, as well as define a common vocabulary we’ll rely on as the course goes on.
