This course 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: Optical methods, mass spectrometry, molecular beams, and surface scanning techniques. Particular examples can be tunneling electron microscopy, atom force microscopy, ion traps, quadrupol and higher multipole analyzers, multiphoton spectroscopies and resonance methods, molecular beams, electron litography, interference resonators etc. Corresponding theory of these experimental approaches will be introduced.
