Modern Optical Spectroscopy: With Exercises And...

This textbook offers clear explanations of optical spectroscopic phenomena and shows how spectroscopic techniques are used in modern molecular and cellular biophysics and biochemistry. The topics covered include electronic and vibrational absorption, fluorescence, resonance energy transfer, exciton interactions, circular dichroism, coherence and dephasing, ultrafast pump-probe and photon-echo spectroscopy, single-molecule and fluorescence-correlation spectroscopy, Raman scattering, and multiphoton absorption. This revised and updated edition provides expanded discussions of quantum optics, metal-ligand charge-transfer transitions, entropy changes during photoexcitation, electron transfer from excited molecules, normal-mode calculations, vibrational Stark effects, studies of fast processes by resonance energy transfer in single molecules, and two-dimensional electronic and vibrational spectroscopy.

The explanations are sufficiently thorough and detailed to be useful for researchers and graduate students and advanced undergraduates in chemistry, biochemistry and biophysics. They are based on time-dependent quantum mechanics, but are developed from first principles with a clarity that makes them accessible to readers with little prior training in this field. Extra topics and highlights are featured in special boxes throughout the text. The author also provides helpful exercises for each chapter.

A second relevant feature of this method is that it allows the decoupling of the effects composing the spectra. In fact, the first part of the neural network aims at finding the background, which in some cases can contain useful information about the physical phenomenon. For example, in laser-induced fluorescence when a fourth harmonic Nd:YAG wavelength is used to induce the fluorescence, the second harmonic scattering is usually present in a spectral region where also fluorescence is present (532 nm). By using our method, we may clean the fluorescence spectrum from the scattering one, without the necessity to filter the signal through optical filters.

About:The forefront researchers within optical spectroscopy in Sweden have joint forces to give a course within optical spectroscopy on an advanced level (for PhD students and Postdocs). It includes lectures giving the fundamentals, as well as pen and paper exercises consolidating the theory learnt. Lectures are given in person, and are focused to three intense occasions in Uppsala, Göteborg, and Lund. Recommended credits = 7.5 HEC.

Contents:The course builds on the textbook Modern Optical Spectroscopy by William Parson. People working at universities having an agreement with Springer can download this book for free. The course will involve lecturers, group exercises, and assignments. The course ends with a workshop covering optical spectroscopy in Sweden, where the lecturers on the course describe their research fields and their research findings. The contents and lecturers in the different sessions are indicated below:

A study of the principles, instrumentation and analytical applications of modern spectroscopic methods, including mass, infrared, UV/visible and NMR spectroscopy. The theoretical basis for each type of spectroscopy, basic instrument design and spectral analysis will be discussed, with particular emphasis on the use of a combination of these methods in structural elucidation. Modern NMR experiments including 2-D spectroscopy will be discussed. Laboratory exercises will focus on instrument operation and data interpretation.

A study of principles, instrumentation and analytical applications of this technique. Lecture material includes sample collection and preparation, sample atomization, optical instrumentation, spectral interferences and data analysis. Atomic absorption techniques will be compared to inductively coupled plasma techniques. Laboratory exercises focus on sample preparation, instrument operation and data analysis.

A presentation of a comprehensive survey of the major area within modern biology with emphasis placed on unsolved problems and the nature of scientific evidence. The course explores the properties of living matter on the molecular, cellular and organismic level. Open to all science majors and non-science majors with a strong interest in biology or a professional need. 041b061a72
