Laser Chemistry: Spectroscopy, Dynamics and Applications

The book is a carefully structured introduction to the basic theory and concepts of this subject. Assuming little in the way of prior knowledge, the book details underlying concepts and provides an overview of experimental techniques, supported by a broad range of case studies.

Concentrating on molecular mechanisms and the fundamental nature of the phenomena, the book emphasises the basic science rather than presenting over-lengthy mathematical derivations and formalisms.

After introducing concepts and methodologies, an extensive range of examples in presented and discussed, covering spectroscopy, photochemistry, gas-phase, cluster, solution and surface reaction dynamics, analytical chemistry, medical chemistry and environmental chemistry. Additionally, a dedicated section on application is provided at the end of the book.

Lasers in Chemistry
Probing Matter; Influencing Matter

These two volumes provide a comprehensive overview of laser applications in many important fields of chemistry. They cover both the gleaning of information, as well as the active influencing of reactions, with the applications stretching from chemistry, physics and materials science to biology and medicine. This handy reference also contains an equipment and peripherals overview for laser probing and laser chemistry setups. It is suitable for chemists, physicists, materials scientists, and laser specialists, as well as those working in the chemical industry.

Since its invention in the 1960s, the laser has revolutionized many disciplines in science and technology, as well as in our everyday lives. In chemistry, lasers are not only used to study compounds and materials, but also to influence and even start reactions. By manipulating the reaction conditions, hitherto inaccessible material properties, reaction pathways and improved results can be achieved.

These two volumes cover both the active influencing of reactions as well as the gleaning of information, with applications spanning chemistry, physics and materials science to biology and medicine.
