Abstract:

The seventh topical meeting on Lasers and Applications to Chemical and Environmental Analysis continued the tradition of state-of-the-art research and applications and was presented in an informal atmosphere designed to foster communication among researchers and practitioners in the field. New developments in optical sources, instrumentation, and spectroscopic techniques are principal driving forces for the increased use of lasers in chemical analysis and environmental monitoring. Topics that were covered include Application of new laser sources to analytical spectroscopy Diode laser applications in combustion, industrial, and atmospheric measurements Laser diagnostics for combustion Laser based detection coupled to microanalytical separations Microoptical systems for chemical analysis Laser based detection for high density chemical sensing arrays Development and applications of single-molecule spectroscopy Fluorescence based methods for detection of individual biomolecules including imaging.
