Vibrational Spectroscopy Facility
The Vibrational Spectroscopy Facility is one of the research facilities within the School of Chemistry (F11) at The University of Sydney. It is located on Level 1 in Rooms 256 to 260 of the Madsen Building (F09). Vibrational spectroscopy consists of two non-destructive and non-invasive analytical techniques, infrared and Raman spectroscopy, which are used for determining the chemical and/or biochemical components of materials and biological samples and their distributions therein. The Facility houses the largest concentration of such state-of-the-art equipment in Australia.
The instrumentation is principally for use of the staff and students of the School of Chemistry and to the wider University community. The advanced equipment lends itself to a broad range of applications and outside users are encouraged. In order to maintain a high level of excellence in service and equipment, the Facility must operate on the basis of a user pays system. Charges for the use of the instrumentation with the facility can be found under the heading of Facility Charges.
