Atomic and Molecular Spectroscopy
- To get insight into applied research areas, innovation, experimental development, new technologies, with the main goal of recognizing fundamental research as relevant
- Contribute to technical background of top qualified experts to participate in several professional activities requiring underlying physical support
- Teaching solid experimental up-to-date achievements on themes related to fundamental and applied physics
- Stressing particular physical phenomena which are relevant within the context of radiation biology, radiotherapy with the particular attention to biomolecular damage, dissociative electron attachment and charge transfer to biological molecules, among many others
- To promote capabilities allowing for independent scientific research on Atomic and Molecular Physics context
- To recognize the advantage of interlinking several research areas with Atomic and Molecular Physics, e.g. with Chemistry, Biophysics, Medical Physics, Instrumentation, Technology, among many others.

The present lecture course aims at promoting and encourages students to get particular active in order to develop their capabilities on a scientific background, which can be achieved with the supervision of the lecturer(s). The contents will be presented in a way to allow different learning chances, which in turn means having a constant flux of questions and answers to be delivered. Throughout the lecture course on a regular basis: a) asking questions to students about the different contents and problems’ solving, b) clarify any doubts on less attainable concepts and c) encourage active oral participation. Though we believe this will allow a straight relationship between students and lecturer(s). The evaluation process will accommodate information about students’ motivation and active participation, preparing a writen and oral presentation on one of the tiopics included in the curricular structure. If applicable, a written examination will be delivered.

Course content is based on a set of scientific research themes, which are designed to be complementary to other lecture modules of the PhD programme. Taking in account an advanced and up-to-date nature the presented themes include: - Spectroscopies (5 h); - VUV and IR (5 h); - Molecular physics: photon, electron and (heavy) ion interactions with biomolecules (8 h); -Theoretical/experimental achievements with biomolecules (5 h); - Introduction to atomic and molecular clusters (5 h).
