Introduction to High Resolution Spectroscopy 

Introduction Rotational Vibrational Miscellaneous

Molecular Vibration
Use the sliders on the right to investigate the effect of the atomic masses, force constant , bond length and energy on the harmonic and anharmonic vibrations of the molecule. Click on the corresponding quantum mechanical energy levels to show the quantized versions.

Versions showing only harmonic motion and only the anharmonic motion are also available.

Once you have covered all of the available resources for vibrational spectroscopy, you should test your knowledge and understanding with the self test.
