The goal of this course is to provide an introduction to the physics low-dimensional solid state systems, their fascinating properties, and why these provide and are of high interest in science and technology. You will further learn the basics of the primary optical spectroscopy methods to characterize and understand theses systems. This course will prepare you to start anMaster thesis or PhD in a research group that works on low-dimensional materials.
