Electronic spectroscopy with a narrow bandwidth laser allows the hyperfine interactions of electronic and nuclear spins to be resolved in free radicals.More
An important technique, both in our work and Chemistry in general, is the use of spectroscopy to probe molecules. In the Bristol group, spectroscopy finds applications in determination of molecular structure, identification of excited electronic states, study of reaction products, and as a probe of atmospheric or plasma chemistry. One of the products of this work is the PGOPHER program, a tool that has been developed to interpret different types of spectra as part of many years of research. This program has been made available to the community, and is now in use by many research groups throughout the world.
