Work principles of various optical measurements will be reviewed, together with the introduction of frontiers of optical research
1. Understand the work principles and actual methods of spectroscopy concerning luminescence, absorption, reflection, polarization, and their time-resolved signals.
2. Obtain knowledge useful to carry out actual experiments and detection.
Lasers, optical components, UV/VIS/NIR spectroscopy, time-resolved spectroscopy, magneto-optical effects, non-linear optics, x-ray spectroscopy
|✔ Specialist skills||Intercultural skills||Communication skills||Critical thinking skills||Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
Purpose, aim, and methods of various spectroscopy will be divided into the subjects stated in the lecture plan. Each subject will be reviewed at each turn. Drills will be given at the fifth turn in order to realize knowledge you acquired in the class.
