Starting with basic concepts of quantum mechanics relevant for spectroscopy (two level systems, quantum mechanics of electromagnetic transitions, density matrix, etc.), the lecture will cover realization and application of coherent spectroscopy in magnetic resonance and optics including, e.g. spin and photon echo phenomena, quantum beats.
