    Application of atomic and molecular spectroscopy at a wide range of fields, e.g. industrial, biosciences, microscopy, pharmaceutical, environmental, trace analysis: 1. Explain the mechanisms of and fundamental distinctions between molecular and atomic spectroscopy 2. Recognise the issues regarding sensitivity and selectivity of molecular and atomic spectroscopy 3. Evaluate the limitations and analytical issues associated with each method 3. Demonstrate analytical application of these atomic and molecular absorption and emission techniques 4. Discriminate the analytical challenges that can be appropriately solved by these spectroscopic techniques

Module examination
Skills to be acquired in this module
The students thoroughly deepen their knowledge on concepts of spectroscopy as well as on biophotonics, This module provides the theoretical background for analytical applications involving UV-Visible spectroscopy, atomic absorption, emission and laser based spectroscopies. The students develop a sound understanding of the principles and instrumentation of atomic and molecular spectroscopy with in depth applications to a wide range of environments e.g. analytical, biological, industrial, pharmaceutical, environmental. The students develop problem solving skills with reasoning based on theory underlying spectroscopy and photonics in biosciences and medicine thus providing a background to practical laboratory training.
