cross-posting, it will happen at most once a year)

On 14 February 2024, a new edition of will
start. It is a free open online course about the physics of hyperfine
interactions and experimental methods based thereupon. You can take this
course self-paced at any time of the year, or - if you start on Feb 14 or
before - you can take it in sync with students at Ghent University and KU
Leuven. In the latter case, you can ask questions and get feedback just as
these students do.

The course is scheduled for 12 weeks, and requires about 5 hours of work per
week. Emphasis is on conceptual understanding, less on mathematical
derivations. The level is advanced bachelor or (early) master. A general
science background at bachelor level is the expected entry level.

This is the list of topics covered:

the nucleus
the physics framework (classical/quantum)
electric monopole shift
magnetic hyperfine interaction
electric quadrupole interaction
laser spectroscopy
Mössbauer spectroscopy
synchrotron radiation methods
nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR, a.k.a. MRI)
nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR)
ENDOR (Electron Nuclear DOuble Resonance)
electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR)
low-temperature nuclear orientation (LTNO)
NMR on oriented nuclei (NMR/ON)
perturbed angular correlation spectroscopy (PAC)

Students get every week a set of videos, with associated tasks. Reports are
submitted 24 hours before the weekly feedback webinar. During this weekly
webinar, common problems encountered in the tasks are discussed, and
questions raised by students during the past week are addressed. The webinars
are livestreamed as well as recorded.

If you want to offer this course as a formal course to students at your
place, please get in touch and we'll see how this can be organized.

Feel free to have a look at Most of the
material is available without registration, only for participating in
discussion fora and to submit reports you need a short and free registration.

You receive this one-time email because you are known to be interested in
hyperfine interactions, or because you have been previously registered as a
student in this course.

Yours sincerely,
