MetadataShow full item record
Introduction to the study of physical methods to probe the electronic and geometric structure of inorganic compounds. Included are electronic photoelectron spectroscopy; vibrational and rotational spectroscopy; magnetic measurements (including electron and nuclear spin resonance); Mossbauer spectroscopy; mass spectrometry; electrochemical measurements and crystallographic chemical analysis (including hands-on use of departmental facilities). From the course home page: Course Description This course covers the following topics: X-ray diffraction: symmetry, space groups, geometry of diffraction, structure factors, phase problem, direct methods, Patterson methods, electron density maps, structure refinement, how to grow good crystals, powder methods, limits of X-ray diffraction methods, and structure data bases.
