Mol Phys July 15

Molecular Physics Workshop, Caen, 7-10 July 2015 - Université de Caen Basse-Normandie, France

St Pierre Church, central Caen (© Calvados-Tourisme)

The Molecular Physics Workshop is organised by the Molecular Physics Group (MPG) of the UK Institute of Physics in partnership with the Centre de recherche sur les Ions, les MAtériaux et la Photonique (CIMAP) laboratory. The highlighted themes are ion collisions with molecules, low energy electron induced processes, large molecules and nanoparticles, synchrotron and laser spectroscopies, and molecular astrophysics. The workshop is inspired by the MPG’s Chemical Physics meeting in Orsay (2004). Generous support from the Région Basse-Normandie, the Université de Caen Basse-Normandie, the MPG, the PIMMS International Training Network, CIMAP, the Faraday Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry, and the Spectroscopy and Dynamics Group (SDG) of the Royal Society of Chemistry have ensured low registration fees and a number of talk slots have been reserved for students and post-docs.
