End to a Great Conference Season

End to a Great Conference Season

September was a busy month for the members of the TAG group! The group spent a majority of the month travelling around the world to present their work and catch up collaborators. The month was capped off by the annual IRMMW-THz meeting, which was held in Copenhagen this year.

New Research Into Crystalline Anharmonicity Published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry B

New Research Into Crystalline Anharmonicity Published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry B

The work showcases the ability of terahertz spectroscopy to probe temperature dependant changes in the low-frequency vibrational modes, and ultimately relates them to intermolecular anharmonicity.

Farewell to Johanna

Farewell to Johanna

Johanna Sauerwein, an undergraduate student from Friedrich Schiller University Jena in Germany, has completed a highly productive three-month visit to the TAG group today. She was a valuable addition to the lab, and was a critical component of the research performed during her time. She effectively immersed herself in all areas of research, both on the imaging and spectroscopic sides. She will be sorely missed!

Day meeting on THz spectroscopy in Cambridge 18 March 2016

Together with Teranet, an EPSRC-funded network of UK Universities and companies active in terahertz science and technology, the Molecular Spectroscopy Group and East Anglia Region of the Analytical Division of the RSC will jointly host the 4th terahertz spectroscopy meeting in Cambridge. Following three successful meetings in 2009, 2011 and 2013 with the RSC, this year's meeting is the first one involving Teranet and to mark the occasion we will return to Gonville & Caius College in Cambridge. The meeting will focus on recent advances in terahertz spectroscopy.
