A synopsis of the curriculum

This module aims to develop learners’ knowledge and understanding of the structure of the atom gained in the core
units and extend it so that learners gain an understanding of the principles of spectroscopy and matter analysis.

Starting with an overview of quantum theory and the particle
-
wave nature of matter, the unit covers the key processes
behind electron transiti
ons. This directly leads to an understanding of electromagnetic wave spectroscopy, specifically
optical and ultraviolet. Other wavelengths involve different processes within the atom and infrared, x
-
ray and gamma
ray spectroscopy are explored in turn.

The
use of charged particles in matter analysis is examined by exploring the interaction between charge and
electromagnetic fields. This leads into an examination of the construction and operation of the electron microscope and
the mass spectrometer. The modul
e concludes with an overview of how the nucleus of the atom is being used
increasingly in analytical chemistry, through the use of neutron scattering and nuclear magnetic resonance.

Learning and Teaching Methods, including nature and number o
f contact hours and total study hours which
will be expected of students, and how these relate to achievement of the intended learning outcomes

The total learning time for the module will be 150 hours. The module will be delivered by means of lectures, sem
inars,
and practical work. Learners will be expected to undertake approximately 90 hours of independent study, including
research, required reading and answering assignments.

There will be 32 one hour lectures, 4 one hour supervision/problem sessions one p
er learning outcome and 8 half day
laboratory sessions (total 60 hours). This will include a variety of tasks, discussions, study materials and case studies,
practical’s,
as appropriate to the topics being covered, with the focus being on the learning
outcomes.

Implications for
learning resources, including staff, library, IT and space

This is an existing module and there are no new implications for learning resources
.

As far as can be reasonably anticipated, the curriculum, learning and teaching methods and forms of
assessment do not present any non
-
justifiable disadvantage to students with disabilities
