Virtual Spectroscopy

We are developing virtual spectrometers that will simulate the inner workings of real spectrometers (like those mentioned on our research webpage) and produce data that is similar to what would be acquired using a real spectrometer. The motivation for developing them lies in providing students with virtual lab experiences when in-person labs are not possible.

Here is a screenshot of a virtual FTIR spectrometer that we are currently developing:
