Abstract Title: The Advanced Spectroscopy Laboratory Course at Miami University
Abstract: The course of Advanced Spectroscopy of Atoms and Molecules (PHY442/542) at Miami University has both lecture and laboratory components and focuses on quantum phenomenology using spectroscopy as a tool. The course goal is to create opportunity for the students to work on a wide range of stimulating experiments, designed to deepen their understanding of the underlying Physics in the various subfields of spectroscopy, to develop laboratory and analytic skills, to improve their oral and written communication abilities, and to prepare them for advanced physics research. Moreover, the physics majors get involved in substantive undergraduate research projects. An experiment particularly evocative for the spirit of our course employs laser induced fluorescence from iodine molecules to observe their vibrational and rotational bands.
