Dielectric, Magnetic and Optical Properties of Materials
Consistent treatment of the electric (dielectric), magnetic and optical properties of the materials based on microscopic and macroscopic principles. Introduction to classical and quantum electrodynamics. Electric properties: electric polarization, electric dipole moment, polarizability, relative permittivity. Magnetic properties: magnetic polarization, magnetic susceptibility, paramagnetism, magnetic resonance parameters. Optical properties: polarization, interference, diffraction, optical activity, refractive index. Introduction to non-linear optics.
