Aims, contents and method of the course

Discussion of selected advanced spectrometric methods, starting at the wavelength range of NMR spectroscopy (app. 1m) and going to -spectroscopy ( app. 10-14m), quality assurance for wine by 13C-NMR and 1H/2D isotopic ratio, testing of materials and medical applications of NMR-tomography, ESR-spectroscopy, defect structures, F-centres, detection of irradiated foodstuffs, microwave spectroscopy, interstellar matter, isotopic analysis in cosmogenesis, analytical applications of laser technology in atomic spectroscopy (AAS, LIBS and LA-AES resp., LEAFS) and molecular spectroscopy (PAS, TLS, LIF, LPF, SERS) in environmental analysis to detect heavy metals, halogenated or polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, down to single molecules, Mößbauer spectroscopy, isomeric shift, quadrupole splitting, specification.
