Ziele

The lecture deepens the understanding of light matter interaction beyond the absolute basics (absorption, refractive index, gain) using examples from atomic and semiconductor physics. The knowledge of physical limits of measurement techniques will help the students to judge and plan experimental setups.

Inhalt

Time-resolved pump-probe spectroscopy, photoluminescence spectroscopy, application of non-linear optics for second harmonic light generation, polarized light, notions of light matter interaction, optical selection rules, optical spin selection rules, optical shot noise, quantum limits of precision measurements, elimination of noise sources in optical measurement setups

Voraussetzungen

none

Empfohlene Vorkenntnisse

  • Basic knowledge of electrodynamics and quantum mechanics, some mathematics
  • Quantum mechanics of the hydrogen atom and the harmonic oscillator.
