Within this focus course, we will study the basics of intermolecular interactions. These include molecular properties such as polarizabilities, to learn about the behavior of molecules in external fields, as well as the treatment of thermodynamic and statistical effects. [more]
Learn powerful and effective methods for conducting all types of meeting from an experienced expert. [more]
In this course, chemistry will mainly be understood as reactions. The course gives an overview about the basics of reaction chemistry and discuss what is already known and what can be measured in the laboratory nowadays (i.e. describing the current frontiers and where the research performed at CFEL can make a difference). In the biochemistry part, the basic principles of nucleic acids (DNA, RNA, their replication etc.) and proteins, their structure and function etc. will be discussed. It will be interesting to work out where the new coherent sources can advance the field. [more]
This course covers the basic phenomenology and microscopic theory of superconductivity: - definition of superconductors and their thermodynamics - microscopic BCS theory: electron-phonon interaction, Fröhlich Hamiltonian, Cooper instability, mean-field theory, Bogoliubons [more]
The course provides an overview of the working principles of nonlinear optics with a focus on the basic physical concepts. [more]
This course covers basic concepts in the topological classification of band structures of solids, the development of which led to the Physics Nobel Prize in 2016 for Thouless, Kosterlitz and Haldane. [more]
