The directions below describe the sequence of topics in the program. Do not move forward until you are familiar with all the essentials. I would suggest that each program not exceed one week, so you can only work on one of them at a time. You will have roughly four hours per day, Monday through Friday. However, in order to retain the benefit of the program you are going to need to learn the material well before the program starts.
This is my 2nd through 4th program in this same method, and I can assure you that the difference between this one and last time is enormous. This time I have planned my curriculum so that you only need know one concept at a time (or even one technique properly applied) before moving on to its analogous application. Thanks to the rise of the web, this is probably the smoothest learning experience of your life.
I know first hand of the value of fast learning curves. Coming out of intro programming courses that taught the same material for three weeks a year, I had a completely different outlook on what programming could do for academic research. It was a pleasant surprise to find more of a theoretical base in the first course, so it is no surprise that the program has sped up considerably.
I have found in the past that students with the fastest learning curves are the ones who retain the material the best. It is a subtle fact of life that you learn from first exposure. So, in order to impress upon you just how important it is to learn your materials, I have designed my programs to only require familiarization with one concept per day. That is the key to keeping your experience enjoyable and rapid. Hopefully you will find the experience of learning fantastic.
DescriptionThis course is an introduction to the major techniques for measuring molecular and supramolecular properties. Topics to be covered include the basic spectroscopic methods for characterizing molecular structure (infrared, Raman & NMR), the fundamentals of multiphoton spectroscopy and pump-probe spectroscopy are covered in terms of the effects that these methods have on both the molecules concerned and the environment in which they are placed. d2c66b5586
