The molecular spectroscopy sub-group carries out vibrational and rotational spectroscopic analyses on experimental data obtained primarily in the infrared (IR), Raman, and microwave (MW) region, as well as developing quantum mechanical methods for theoretical support of these analyses.
This sub-group consists of four retirees (guest workers) with different interests: J. T. Hougen (theory), W. J. Lafferty (gas-phase IR), F. J. Lovas (gas-phase MW), and A. Weber (gas-phase Raman). For details about their present research activities, click on their respective projects listed below.
