Electromagnetic radiation, commonly referred to as light, underpins all spectroscopic techniques, ranging from the highly energetic gamma rays, through x-rays, ultraviolet, visible, infrared, microwaves to the low-energy radio waves. The principles of wave- and particle-like behaviour determine the nature of the radiation and its interaction with matter, whether in the form of subatomic, atomic, molecular or macromolecular structures.
