The two types of Vibrational Spectroscopy differ in the mechanisms they rely on:
Dipole moment – Vibrations which have large changes of dipole moments give rise to [blank_start]__________[blank_end];
Polarisability – Vibrations which cause large changes in polarisability give rise to [blank_start]__________[blank_end].
