Molecular Response Properties Summer School

Much of our understanding of molecules and materials is derived from their responses to electromagnetic fields – from high-resolution spectroscopic analyses for the identification of molecules in interstellar space, to magnetic resonance imaging used in medical diagnostics, to non-linear fiber optics employed in telecommunications. This school will focus on the quantum mechanical theories underlying weak-field responses in absorption, emission, and scattering, at a level appropriate for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers.

Interested Students

Students interested in attending the School should register here. Registration closes on June 10, 2017, or when all available space has been reserved. The registration fee of $600 includes all lodging (June 18-24), meals, and instructional materials, as well as an opening reception, an evening social event, and morning/afternoon coffee breaks.
