Seminar course 2022. FAF020F

Probing matter with light, 5hp.

Probing matter with light, 5hp.

Ph.D. students working with “probing matter with light” are invited to participate in the seminar course starting with an introduction meeting the 26th of January 10.00-12.00 in A314, which is the group room at Atomic Physics. The course is given as a seminar series by the students for the students and the first presentations will be given on the 9th of February.

The course is coordinated by teachers from the divisions of the Lund Laser Centre (LLC)
Johan Mauritsson (Atomic Physics)
Jens Uhlig (Chemical Physics)
Edouard Berrocal (Combustion physics)
Francesca Curbis (MAXIV –laboratory/Synchrotron radiation physics)

During this course the students working in different areas of laser physics, chemistry and materials science will get acquainted with the ongoing research through sharing their own research fields with the others. The other important goal of the course is to improve students’ presentation skills.

Every student will:

·         Give a presentation on a given topic related to their research

·         Make a short popular science video together with two or three other students

·         Make an introduction to a topic and/or work as a discussion leader (chairperson) at one of the sessions

·         Participate actively in each session (questions, discussions, etc)

·         Attend all the course sessions.

At the introduction meeting with all students and teachers the topics of the course will be decided and tasks will subsequently be distributed between the students.

We suggest the following preliminary list of general topics, which fits to the activity of at least two LLC divisions:

·         Absorption / Fluorescence

·         Non-linear optics

·         Ultrashort pulses

·         X-ray sources

·         Spectroscopy

·         Phonons/Heat transport in solids

·         Multi-spectral imaging

·         Laser-matter interaction

·         Microscopy

This list of topics is just a starting point. At the introduction meeting we will discuss the topics and update according to the interests. 

In order to register to the course, send an e-mail to before the 15th of January (with name, division and when you started your PhD studies).
