Teaching

  • PH-306 Atomic Physics I

    This course describes the application of quantum mechanics to atomic structure, together with the implications for spectroscopy. The electronic structure of hydrogen (including spin, fine structure and hyperfine structure), helium and alkali metals will be discussed from first principles in quantum mechanics. The effect on energy levels of applied magnetic fields (Zeeman effect) is calculated in perturbation theory. Practical examples of spectroscopy are briefly described.

  • PH-M10 Atomic and Quantum Optics III

    This module deepens the student's understanding of atomic physics and quantum optics to a level which enables the student to participate under guidance in a research group involved in cutting edge research in the field.
