  • Ocean Optics Unveils New Science Curriculum

BioPhotonics
Jan 2014
DUNEDIN, Fla., Nov. 27, 2013 — Ocean Optics has launched a new version of its Spectroscopy 101 curriculum for high school and college teaching laboratories, the company said recently.

Spectroscopy 101, written for use with the company's Red Tide and ChemUSB spectrophotometers, has been updated to work with the new OceanView software. Contents include an introduction to spectroscopy, key concepts and detailed instructions for conducting a range of experiments with students.

Spectroscopy techniques help students better understand what happens at the atomic and molecular levels when samples interact with light. By observing these interactions, students can identify different wavelengths within the photonic spectrum and quantify the amount of light being absorbed, reflected, scattered or emitted.

The seven updated experiments include: identification of commercial food dyes in beverages, absorbance measurement of chlorophyll extracted from spinach leaves, spectrophotometric characterization of spice extracts, and emission measurements of light sources.
