Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The subject starts by introduction to electronic structure of solids. The subject further introduces various methods for measurements of various physical parameters, nemely diffraction, spectroscopy, magneto-optics, time-resolved techniques and nuclear techniques (Moessbauer spectroscopy). * Basics of electronic structure of solids, electron in periodical potential, band structure, energy levels, transition of electrons. * Diffraction (X-ray diffraction, electron diffraction, neutronn diffraction) * Spectroscopy (photon-photon, electron-photon, electron-electron spectroscopies) * Conductivity, optical and magnetic characterization * Magnto-optical effects and its applications * Examples of time-resolved investigations. Stroboscopy (pump-probe) and resonance techniques. * Nuclear spectroscopy (energy levels in core, Moessbauer spectroscopy)
