CHEM 750/7500-02 - Physical Radiation Chemistry

Semester: Winter 2020 Professor: K. Ghandi | Discipline: Physical | Campus: Guelph
The purpose of the course is to introduce certain physical aspects of radiation chemistry, from interaction of ionizing radiation with matter to nuclear probes. The radiation chemistry has been the subject of study over a century from the time of Marie Curie and remain as an area of intense research. The discussion of the fundamental physical chemistry of radiation effects on matter provides the background for these effects and provides tools for discussion of practical applications, some of ...

Semester: Winter 2020 Professor: G. Sciaini | Discipline: Physical | Campus: Waterloo
This course provides an overview of laser fundamentals and the application of ultrashort optical and electron pulses in femtosecond pump-probe methods. The course will cover fundamentals related to classical description of light, electromagnetic waves, propagation of light in vacuum and matter, and light-matter interaction. The quantum nature of light (photon), its interaction with laser media, conditions for lasing (population inversion), generation of optical and electron pulses, ...

CHEM 7500-05 / NANO 701-702 - Nanoscale Surfaces/Interfaces & Spectro-microscopy

Semester: Winter 2020 Professor: P. Radovanovic | Discipline: Physical | Campus: Waterloo
I.  Surfaces and Interfaces  Surfaces and interfaces are integral part of all materials, and play a key role in many scientific and technological processes. Surfaces and interfaces are important in semiconductor industry, device fabrication, catalysis, medical diagnosis and treatment, and nanoscience and nanotechnology in general. Due to the reduced sizes of nanostructures, surfaces make up a very large portion of nanomaterials. The objective of this course is to ...
