[BEAM] ATM: NMR spectroscopy for biomolecular and materials characterization (March, 2023)

Aims

This module addresses doctoral students in chemistry, physics, biophysics, and related fields without much prior knowledge in NMR spectroscopy. It introduces the basic theoretical and technical concepts necessary for an understanding of data/spectrum acquisition in pulsed NMR and the information content, and focuses on a few specific experimental techniques to study dynamics in polymer and biopolymer systems.

[BEAM] ATM: How we can model and use symmetry (30.-31.3.2022)

After some motivation and first examples, we look at groups systematically and explore the mathematical language to study them. There will be exercises to work on and we discuss solutions (even if incomplete). One of the goals is to understand the symmetry of regular n-gons and to really get in touch with mathematical reasoning. And of course we want to discuss where symmetry might play a role in your work!

lecturer: Prof. Rebecca Waldecke
