Paper Abstract

Recent advances in our vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) instumentation are described. A new CaF2 photoelastic modulator and a xenon lamp have been incorporated into the VCD spectrometer. These changes have substantially increased the sensitivity and extended the long wavelength range of the instrument. Some examples of VCD spectra obtained with the improved instrumentation are presented and future developments that will further increase both sensitivity and wavelength range are discussed.
