This course is indented to develop the basic philosophy of spectroscopy. This Course is based on the M.Sc Physics syllabus of St. Albert’s College (Autonomous) and M.G. University.
The course aims to equip the student with the understanding of
(i) Atomic structure and spectra of typical one- electron and two-electron systems.
(ii) The theory of microwave and infra-red spectroscopies as well as the electronic
spectroscopy of molecules
(iii) The basics of Raman spectroscopy and the nonlinear Raman effects
(iv) The spin resonance spectroscopies such as NMR and ESR. This course also introduces
the student to the ideas of Mossbauer spectroscopy .
