Subject syllabus:

The subject deals with methods, physical description and appliications of optical spectroscopy. The lectures consists of: 1. Physical principles of optical spectroscopy, origin of spectral dependence of optical parameters, Kramers-Kronigovy relations and its application in spectroscopy. 2. Modeling of light propagation, reflection, transmission, and absorption spectra of materials, thin films, and nanostructures. 3. Dispersion elements, gratings, doispersion prism, interference methods in infrared spectroscopy, time-domain spectroscopy. Sources, detectors and materials used in spectrometers. 4. Spectroscopy in visible, near ultraviolet and near infrared spectral range (components of spectrometers, dual beam spectrometer, resolution). 5. Spectroscopic ellipsometry, ellipsometric angles, generalized and Mueller matrix ellipsometry, methods of data processing. 6. Spectroscopy in mid infrared spectral range (physical origin of infrared absorptions, vibration spectra, symmetry, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, apodization, ATR, IRRAS), Raman spektroscopy. 7. Magneto-optical spectroscopy (origin of magneto-optical effects, Kerr, Faraday, and Voight magneto=optic effects). 8. Origin of optical spectra from free charges, drude term, relation with electrical properties of materials. Debye model, absorption of polar liquids. 9. Model of damped harmonic oscillator, application for description of interband transitions and for vibration spectra in infrared spectroscopy. 10. Semiclasical theory of optical spectra of crystals, band structure, polycrystalline and amorphous materials, excitons. 11. Origin of infrared vibration and rotation spectra. 12. Models of nanostructured and nanokomposite materials. Application of effective medium theory, Maxwell-Garnet a Bruggeman formula. Description of periodic and aperiodic systems, plasmonics.
