Applications of Photochemistry and Spectroscopy.

     This course focuses on the fundamental aspects of photophysical and photochemical phenomena.  Fundamental aspects of the creation and fate of electronically excited states are covered.  The application of modern instrumentation to probe excited-state dynamics are emphasized.   Topics include the theory and practical aspects of fluorescence and transient absorption spectroscopies.  The course emphasizes the interaction of light with molecular systems to (i) initiate and understand important light-initiated reactions, including photosynthesis, vision, and nucleic acid photochemistry and (ii) develop practical sensors for use in biological and environmental applications.  Prequisites:  CHEM 302 or 303 and CHEM 352 or equivalent.  NOTE:  This course is also offered at the 600 level for graduate students.
