Experimental methods in materials research (IMPRS-UFAST focus course)

Andrea Cavalleri, Michael Först, Daniele Nicoletti, Dr. Isabella Gierz, Dr. Sebastian Loth, PD Dr. habil. Guido Meier



This course will provide an overview of selected techniques used to probe the microscopic properties of condensed matter. The course will cover the use of these methods at steady state as well as their extension to transient measurements of non-equilibrium phenomena in condensed matter.

Key topics:

Nonlinear optics / symmetry of materials / angle resolved photo-emission / band structure of solids / infrared optical spectroscopy / dynamical conductivity / scanning tunneling microscopy / density of states / magnetism
