Vibrational Circular Dichroism
Vibrational Circular Dichroism (VCD) is the differential absorption between left and right circularly polarized light (A = ALCP – ARCP). It is a measurement of the optical activity for chiral molecules.
PEM Setting: quarter-wave retardation (λ/4)
Polarization Modulation: right and left circular polarization
Lock-in reference: PEM’s 1st harmonic
Structural study and chiral analysis in chemistry; biochemistry; drug and pharmaceutical industry
