Spectroscopy is the study of the interaction between matter and electromagnetic radiation. Historically, spectroscopy originated through the study of visible light dispersed according to its wavelength, by a prism. Later the concept was expanded greatly to include any interaction with radioactive energy as a function of its wavelength or frequency. Spectroscopic data are often represented by an emission spectrum, a plot of the response of interest as a function of wavelength or frequency.

Infrared Spectroscopy is the study of infrared light interacting with a molecule. This can be analysed by measuring absorption, emission and reflection. The technique is applied in organic and inorganic chemistry. It is used by chemists to determine functional groups in molecules. Infrared Spectroscopy measures the vibrations of atoms, and based on this it is possible to define the functional group.

It is one of the vibrational spectroscopic techniques used to provide information on molecular vibrations and crystal structures. This technique uses a laser light source to irradiate a sample, and generates an infinitesimal amount of Raman scattered light, which is detected as a Raman spectrum. The characteristic fingerprinting pattern in a Raman spectrum makes it possible to identify substances including polymorphs and evaluate local crystallinity, orientation and stress.

EPR (Electron Paramagnetic Resonance) is a spectroscopic technique that detects species that have unpaired electrons. It is also called as ESR (Electron Spin Resonance). A large number of materials have unpaired electrons which include free radicals, many transition metal ions, and defects. Free electrons are often short-lived, but still play vital roles in many processes such as photosynthesis, oxidation, catalysis, and polymerization reactions. As a result EPR crosses several disciplines like chemistry, physics, biology, materials science, medical science and many more.

Chromatography is an Explanatory method of isolating the components from its blend on the basis of the relative amounts of each solute dispersed between a moving fluid, called the portable stage, and a bordering stationary stage. The fundamental cause of partition in chromatography procedure is the speed of distinctive components in the mixture in through mobile phase. Chromatography partition technology has progressed rapidly. Chromatography is of two types analytical and preparative. Analytical Chromatography is applied to measure the amount of analytes in the mixture. Preparative Chromatography is done on scales from micrograms up to kilograms. The main advantage of Preparative Chromatography is the low cost and disposability of the stationary phase used in the process.

Crystallography is the science that examines crystals, which can be found everywhere in nature from salt to snowflakes to gemstones. Crystallographers use the properties and inner structures of crystals to determine the arrangement of atoms and generate knowledge that is used by chemists, physicists, biologists, and others. Applied Crystallography is a  crystallographic method that is used to study the crystalline and non-crystalline matter with neutrons, X-rays and electrons, their application in condensed matter research, materials science and the life sciences, and their use in identifying phase transformations and structural changes of defects, structure-property relationships, interfaces, and surfaces etc.

Clinical Chemistry is that field of clinical pathology involved with analysis of body fluids. The discipline originated within the late nineteenth century with the use of simple chemical tests for diverse elements of blood and waste product. After this, totally different clinical biochemistry techniques were applied at the side of the use and live of catalyst activities, spectrophotometry, action, and biological assay. Endocrine pathology is that the subspecialty of surgical pathology that deals with the diagnosing and characterization of growth and non-neoplastic diseases of organs of the system, as well as the thyroid, parathyroid gland, secreted exocrine gland, and adrenal glands. Pharmacology is additionally a branch of biological chemistry, and medicines committed the study of the adverse effects of chemicals on living organisms. A diagnosing may be an academic degree array of tests performed on excreta, and one in all the foremost common ways of disease susceptibility.

The most intriguing part for researchers is the complex properties which are shown by nanoparticles and nanostructures. Microscopic methods such as SPM and electron microscopes are available to observe nanomaterials at the nanoscale level but the chemical, structural and optical properties is not possible by these instruments. This is where spectroscopic characterization techniques are used to investigate the properties of the nanomaterials.

The following are the five major spectroscopic techniques.

Ultraviolet-Visible spectroscopy (UV-Vis)
Raman spectroscopy
Furrier transformed infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR)
X-Ray diffraction
