Knowledge and understanding: The student will acquire basic and advanced tool to describe the quantum mechanical treatment of time-dependent problems as needed to rationally use spectroscopic techniques of interest in chemistry. A few commonly adopted spectroscopic techniques will be described in detail.
Applying knowledge and understanding: The students will acquire the tools to formally describe and rationalize the knowledge about spectroscopic techniques acquired in previous courses (electronic and vibrational spectroscopy, NMR, etc). Moreover the students will be able to plans spectroscopic experiments to acquire molecular information from measurements run on macrosocpic samples.
Learning skills: Students will acquire basic and advanced the technical-scientific language typical of quantum-mechanics applied to time-dependent systems and to the interaction between the radiating field and matter. The student will therefore be able to read and understand advanced technical-scientific literature in the field.
Communication skills: The student will master the specialistic language needed to interact with specialists in the field of chemistry, physics and material science. The student will be able to reliably transmit complex information into a language accessible to the non-specialistic audience while maintain the correctness of relevant information.
Making judgments: The student will re-structure in a formal and on more advanced basis the basic concepts acquired in previous courses about quantum mechanics and/or spectroscopic techniques.
