|Application of modern laser spectroscopy in the study of intermolecular interactions, dynamics and potential surfaces and their roles in the mechanisms of chemical reactions and phase transition. A variety of molecular systems including molecular ions, radicals, van der Waals molecules, molecular clusters, and cryogenic crystals are being pursued to address these issues.|
|1.||High resolution and high sensitivity laser Spectroscopy.|
|2.||Intermolecular interactions and dynamics.|
|3.||Spectroscopy of transient species such as radicals, molecular ions, and van der Waals complexes.|
|4.||Properties of quantum crystals.|
|5.||Molecules under extreme conditions ( e.g. high electric fields, high pressure, and low temperature).|
