What is Spectroscopy?

Spectroscopy is the study and analysis of light as it interacts with solids, liquids, and gas. Spectroscopy, which is most commonly used in chemistry and element analysis applications, has grown increasingly common in biomedical applications. Common spectroscopy types used in biomedical applications include Coherent anti-stokes, correlation, Fourier transform, mass, and Raman.
