**Optical Microscopy of Soft Matter Systems**

by T. Lee, B. Senyuk, R. P. Trivedi, I. I. Smalyukh

**Publisher**: arXiv 2011**Number of pages**: 41

**Description**:

The fast-growing field of soft matter research requires increasingly sophisticated tools for experimental studies. The aim of this text is to introduce a variety of optical microscopy techniques available to soft matter researchers, starting from basic principles and finishing with a discussion of the most advanced microscopy systems.

I aim to discuss a reasonably wide range of quantum-mechanical phenomena from condensed matter physics, with an emphasis mainly on physical ideas. The most important prerequisite is some understanding of second quantization for fermions and bosons.

DFT is not just another way of solving the Schroedinger equation. Density functional theory is a completely different, rigorous way of approaching any interacting problem, by mapping it exactly to a much easier-to-solve non-interacting problem.
