Solid State Spectroscopy
- Dielectric spectroscopy: macroscopic dielectric properties of crystals; response of matter to a time-dependent electric field; relaxational dynamics; resonant dynamics; measurement of the dielectric constant.
- Neutron scattering: energy, wavelength and wavevector of thermal neutrons; neutron scattering on a crystal; crystal structure determination by neutron scattering.
- Light scattering: Raman, Brillouin and Rayleigh scattering.
- NMR spectroscopy: atomic nucleus in a magnetic field; classical and quantum pictures of NMR; spin relaxation; the spectrum; interactions between atomic nuclei and surrounding atoms and electrons in matter; two-dimensional NMR spectroscopy.
