Welcome to the II Workshop on Spectroscopy Techniques: Generalities and Applications. This workshop aims at providing an overview of different spectroscopic techniques that are of interest to the scientific community working in different fields at the ICMAB and in our nearby research community.
Talks on Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) and Raman Spectrsocopy have been included. In addition, we will have the opportunity to know more about one of the specific techniques offered by the ALBA synchrotron, such as Infrared Microscopy.
The intention of the workshop is to first talk about the generalities of such spectroscopic techniques for those who are non-experts; and then to present more specifically some of the very diverse applications of these techniques, especially in the field of Materials Science. We will count with the presence of experts in these fields who will illustrate us with some examples.

Spectroscopy is one of the most essential tools for the characterization of molecules and materials, based on the interaction between matter and electromagnetic radiation. Spectroscopy is a fundamental exploratory tool in the fields of physics, chemistry, and astronomy, and is also essential in materials science, allowing the composition and structure of matter to be investigated at molecular scale.
The morphology and crystallinity can be investigated with spectroscopic techniques. In the study of materials, one of the key principles is that the structure at an atomic level determines the behavior of the material on a macro scale. Spectroscopy gives scientists in this field the tools they require to develop the cutting-edge materials of the future.
