Quantum Chemistry I (GSC)
In this course, students learn basic principles of quantum mechanics through a variety of examples in atomic physics and molecular science. They learn about a particle in a box from optical transitions of dye molecules, harmonic oscillators from vibrational spectra of molecules, angular momenta from rotational spectra of molecules, and a hydrogen atom from its atomic spectra.
As a text book, “Quantum Mechanics of Molecular Structures” by K. Yamanouchi published in 2012 from Springer will be used.
Associate Professor Erik Lötstedt cooperates in teaching the course.
