In this link you can find the notes for the Master Course Single-Molecule Optics.
The links below will take you to some introductory pages about the concepts and techniques in single-molecule optics. If you are already somewhat familiar with quantum mechanics and optical spectroscopy, then you can easily skip the first few topics; our past and current research projects are described on an extra page.
A crash course in optical microscopy
Light – waves and photons
Basics of optical spectroscopy
The principles of single-molecule detection
Molecular electronic structure and photophysics
A two-level system in an electromagnetic field
Nonlinear and quantum optics
Single molecules as nano-probes for structure and dynamics
Combination of an objective and an aspheric singlet lens
