Circular Dichroism

Circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy measures differences in the absorption of left-handed versus right-handed polarized light that arise due to structural asymmetry. CD spectroscopy has become a very useful technique for characterization of biomolecules. Characterization information obtained from CD include:

The PiStar-180 spectrometer (Applied Photophysics) available at the SSSC is designed for both steady-state and kinetic CD applications. In addition to CD detection, the PiStar-180 spectrometer can also do measurements in absorbance or fluorescence modes.
