Symposium on Advanced Molecular Spectroscopy

Welcome to Symposium on Advanced Molecular Spectroscopy

Molecular spectroscopy, in particular with high spectral resolution, has been contributing for many decades to detailed exploration of structure and microscopic behavior of molecules. It is further renovating itself along with recent rapid advances in electronics and light sources. This Symposium is dedicated to give an overview over such a latest trend in modern molecular spectroscopy and provide a forum to discuss forthcoming opportunities in the scientific field.
This Symposium is organized with twelve invited lectures by several most active researchers coming from all over the world, as well as contributed presentation, which will be discussed in a poster session. We strongly encourage young researchers including graduate students to present their recent achievements in the poster session and to have an intensive discussion with the invited lecturers working in the frontier of the field. It will be our greatest pleasure if this Symposium stimulates the next generation in molecular science to make a contribution coming from their original idea to the global scientific enterprise, via giving then a perspective over “the present” of molecular spectroscopy.

We appreciate your participation and valuable contribution to the Symposium!
