Course content

The course focus on photophysical properties of molecular systems, in particular related to UV-Vis absorption and fluorescence. Special emphasis is on: energy and electron transfer, polarization, and solvent effects, single molecule spectroscopy and super resolution imaging, time resolved fluorescence and transient absorption. 

Learning outcome

After having passed the course, the student should be able to:

 

Knowledge:

  Concepts of  the interaction of light with molecules

  Concepts of  photo physical manifestations of the local molecular environment

  Concepts of  for the kinetics involved in deactivation of electronically excited states of molecules

  Concepts of  the basics of photo induced electron transfer

  Concepts of  steady-state and time-resolved anisotropy of fluorescence emission

  Concepts of  the principles of steady-state and time-resolved experimental techniques

  Concepts of   resonance energy transfer and its applications

  Concepts of  application of fluorescence techniques in sensors

  Concepts of  single molecule fluorescence techniques

  Concepts of  super resolution fluorescence imaging

 

Skills:

- Apply the above mentioned knowledge for understanding and calculating photophysical properties of molecular systems.

 

Competency:
- Read contemporary research papers on photophysics, understand them, present them and write an self consistent essay on it.
