Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The main target is to deal with spectroscopic methods, which are used for characterization of bulk materials, thin films, and periuodic and composite materials. It is focused to optical spectroscipy methods, spectroscopic ellipsometry, and magneto-optical spectroscopic ellipsometry.

Teaching methods

Lectures

Summary

The lectures consist: Physical principles of spectroscopic ellipsometry - electronic transitions and origin of spectral dependence of optical parameters, Kramers-Kronig dispersion relations. Modelling of light propagation in spectroscopic system, matrix formalisms. Optical spectroscopy of nanostructures - effective medium methods and their applications to nanostructured, nanocomposites, and porous materials. Components of spectrometers and ellipsometers - sources, detectors, dispersion components, polarization optics. Methods of spectroscopic data processing and fitting. Reflection and transmission spectroscopy in visible near ultraviolet and near infrared spectral range, spectroscopic ellipsometry, FTIR spectrometry in mid and far infrared range, magneto=optic spectral elleipsometry, modern and advanced methods in spectrometry.
