Vorlesungen - Wintersemester 2019/2020

Physikalische Chemie II

Beschreibung:

Die Vorlesung Physikalische Chemie-II beschäftigt sich mit den Themen Quantenmechanik und Spektroskopie. Im ersten Teil, der Quantenmechanik, wird zunächst auf die historische Entwicklung eingegangen. Daraufhin wird der Welle-Teilchen-Dualismus besprochen sowie unterschiedliche Atommodelle. Dies bildet dann die Grundlage für die Behandlung einfacher quantenmechanischer Systeme (z.B. Teilchen im Kasten, harmonischer Oszillator, Wasserstoffatom). Abschließend werden Drehimpulse, die Dirac-Gleichung, sowie die Bindungsverhältnisse in einfachen Molekülen behandelt.
Der zweite Teil der Vorlesung, Spektroskopie, beschäftigt sich mit den Grundlagen experimenteller Methoden zur spektroskopischen Auflösung von Strukturen und Reaktionen.

Electrochemistry

Description:

The lecture Electrochemistry deals with basic aspects of electrochemistry. Based on thermodynamics of electrochemical systems various models of the electric double layer, the kinetics of electrochemical reactions and applications of modern electrochemistry in energy technology (batteries, fuel cells) are treated. Current research projects on metal deposition, nano-structuring, corrosion and electrocatalysis are presented. Here are considered classical electrochemical techniques, such as e. g. cyclic voltammetry, impedance spectroscopy, and in-situ scanned tunnel microscopy (in-situe STM) for high resolution structural investigations. In addition, an insight into the theoretical models for the description of elementary electrochemical processes or general electrochemical systems are given. Beyond the experimental and theoretical basics of electrochemistry references to applications in industry are made by using selected examples.

Multiscale Modeling in Energy Research

Description:

The lecture "Multiscale Modeling in Energy Research" deals with the various modeling and simulation approaches that are used to describe materials and phenomena related to energy research. As the corresponding materials and problems are rather complex in its nature, a multi-scale approach is required that allows describing various time- and length-scales. In this lecture we will learn which methods are used for a particular scale, what are the specifications and advantages of each method, what they are capable to describe, and what are the limitations and underlying approximations. At the end this should, for instance, enable us to judge on the quality of theoretical studies described in literature.
