180206: Added Ca table to the two electron lab instruction.
Modified the Zeeman instruction (slightly) to the new software that you are going to use

180207: You may follow the grading of the hand-in here. Since it contains personal data you will be required to login with your student ID.


This course will give you fundamental knowledge of the structure of atoms and molecules and their interactions with electromagnetic radiation. The course illustrates the role of quantum mechanics as the fundamental theory for the description of the microscopic world. In the experimental part you will work with modern spectroscopic techniques. We also want to show atomic physics as a very large, active and wide research area in Lund

The course will also train your problem-solving skill and your ability to write scientific reports
