Course Description

First Half: Statistical physics of macromolecular configurations and their correlation to the macroscopic properties including opto-electronic properties of conjugated polymer materials. Second Half: Classical and Quantum mechanical aspects on interaction of light, electromagnetic waves and ionizing radiations with matters, leading to the sophisticated spectroscopic techniques to probe electronic structures of molecular materials in their condensed phases and aggregates

Course Goals

Course Topics

Theme Class number of times Description
Statistical physics of chain molecules 3 Starting from the classical statitical mechanics of chain molecules, we discuss on the sophisticated Flory-Huggins theory of macromolecules, Ising models, as well as worm-like chain molecules.
Backbone configuration and properties 3 Macroscopic physical properties of macromolecules including opto-electronic properties of conjugated polymer chains are discusses in terms of backbone configuration and their modulations.
Interaction of light and electromagnetic waves with matters 2 Starting from the classical theory of electronic transition of molecules, the overall aspects of electromagnetic wave interaction with matters are discussed leading to classical and quantum mechanical pictures of Fermi golden rule.
Theory of interaction cross sections 2 Elastic and inelastic interaction (collision) is discussed in terms of generalized cross sectional view of the interaction starting from Bethe theory.
