Abstract:

The Gordon Research Conference on Molecular Electronic Spectroscopy was held August 8-13, 1982 at the Brewster Academy site, Wolfesboro, NH. There were 109 conferees and 18 invited speakers. The fields covered included the spectra and structure of small molecules and ions including laser techniques of high resolution spectroscopy. An important achievement of the Conference was the bringing together of research workers condensed phases with those usually concerned with isolated molecule properties. Thus sessions were held on energy transfer and ultrahigh resolution spectroscopy in various types of solids and glasses, in addition to a number of lectures on intramolecular dynamics, photophysics and vibrational energy redistribution. A complete session was devoted to multiphoton ionization spectroscopy of moderately large molecules. The topic of large molecule and cluster structure and dynamics was further brought out through the session on spectrscopy in supersonic jets. Critiques returned by the attendees declared the meeting to be of extraordinarily high quality.
