Physics: Atomic and Molecular Spectroscopy
This course combines theory and laboratory exercises providing extensive knowledge and familiarity with modern equipment and methods for spectroscopy and spectroscopy applications. Special emphasis is given to the area of laser spectroscopy. Research equipment is used in the laboratory exercises. The course gives a review of atomic and molecular structure, radiative and scattering processes, spectroscopy of inner electrons, optical spectroscopy, resonance methods, tunable lasers, laser spectroscopy and applications. Among the many practical applications we discuss: remote detection of air and water pollutants, laser diagnostics of combustion processes, laser driven chemical reactions and medical applications. During the course there will be several laboratory demonstrations, including: Synchrotron radiation at the MAX laboratory, ultrafast spectroscopy, laser-radar, coherent Raman spectroscopy in combustion diagnostics and astrophysical applications. Three laboratory exercises, in groups of only 4 students and a highly qualified supervisor, are included: Fourier transform spectroscopy of molecules, Level crossing spectroscopy and Doppler free saturation spectroscopy of atoms.
