{"ModuleCode":"PC3233","ModuleTitle":"Atomic & Molecular Physics I","Department":"Physics","ModuleDescription":"This module presents the basic concepts and principles of atomic and molecular physics. In particular, the module revolves around the energy level schemes of atoms and molecules which are essential to the interpretation of atomic and molecular spectra. Topics covered include the Dirac model, Lamb shift, hyperfine interaction, spin-orbit coupling schemes, Zeeman effect, central-field model, Born-Oppenheimer approximation, Pauli's exclusion principle, Hund's rules, electronic, vibrational, rotational and rotational-vibrational spectra, selection rules, and Raman scattering. The module is targeted at students who have a foundation in quantum mechanics and an interest in spectroscopy.","ModuleCredit":"4","Workload":"3-1-0-1-5","Prerequisite":"PC2130 or
