This is a continuation of the course which teaches the basic principles of molecular and chemical physics which are essential for building and understanding experiments in molecular, physical and analytical chemistry. This two- term course is divided into 4 topics: 1) molecular beam; 2) mass spectrometry, 3) lasers and optical methods; 4)surface scanning techniques. In the first part, underlying physical principles of these methods will be introduced, and in this second part, examples of modern experiments based on the above techniques will be reviewed. Particular examples represent crossed beam experiments, photodissociation experiments, velocity map imaging techniques, laser cooling and BEC experiments. time resolved pump-probe experiments, multiphoton methods, advanced surface analysis techniques etc.
