Course objectives
Atomic structure of matter, relation of observations in real and reciprocal space, particle character of light (photons), particle and wave character of electrons and particles (atoms, molecules, ), fundamentals of quantum mechanics, atoms and their spectra, electronic structure of many atom systems molecules and solids, fundamentals of nuclear physics
  • 1. Macro- and micro- (concepts of structure of matter and their development; macroscopic and microscopic theories and their verification; objects of macroworld - particles and waves). 2. Quantum properties of electromagnetic radiation (historical development of views on nature of light; blackbody radiation, the quantum hypothesis; photoelectric emission, Compton effect; photons). 3. Atomic structure (historical development of views on the atom; the discovery of radioactivity; the discovery of the electron; early models of the atom; scattering experiments, the discovery of the atomic nucleus). 4. The old quantum theory (the planetary model of the atom, the problem of its stability; the Bohr's model of the hydrogen atom, the Bohr-Sommerfeld's model of the atom; optical and X-ray atomic spectra; spectral analysis; interaction of radiation with periodic structures; physical, technological and medical applications). 5. The wave-particle dualism and its physical interpretation (the de Broglie's hypothesis and its experimental verification; Young's double slit experiment with classical particles, waves and microobjects). 6. Fundamentals of wave /quantum/ mechanics (the wave function; the superposition principle and its physical meaning; wave packet; Heisenberg's uncertainty principle for position and momentum; measurement in microworld; the relation of classical and quantum mechanics). 8. Fundamentals of nuclear and particle physics (nuclear properties; nuclear reactions; nuclear models; nuclear fission and fusion; particle interactions; families of particles; conservation laws; the standard model of microworld; fundamental experimental methods in nuclear and particle physics).
