Korea University, Seoul, South Korea

Pacific Northwest Laboratory, Richland, Washington, USA

Effectively introducing a newly developed research field, this book provides a detailed account of basic theory required for an understanding of two-dimensional vibrational and electronic spectroscopy. It also bridges the gap between the formal development of nonlinear optical spectroscopy and the application of the theory to explain experimental results. The author presents novel definitions and theoretical frameworks for linear and nonlinear response spectroscopy and describes a range of two-dimensional spectroscopic techniques to compare the merits and disadvantages of each technique. From the development of the theory to novel applications, this book covers a gamut of topics in this field, including perturbation theory, coherent Raman scattering, pump-probe spectroscopy, photon echo spectroscopy, IRvisible four-wave mixing, and linear and nonlinear optical activity spectroscopy. Features

This state-of-the-art book explores a novel analytical technology that separates and characterizes ions by the difference between their mobility in gases at high and low electric fields. It also covers the novel topics of higher-order differential IMS and IMS with alignment of dipole direction. Incorporating some of his own unpublished research, the author integrates the fundamental physics of high-field ion mobility with practical considerations of FAIMS implementation.
