About these proceedings


In recent years there have been great advances in the fields of laboratory and astronomical spectroscopy. These have been equally matched by large-scale computations using state-of-the-art theoretical methods. The accurate atomic opacities that are available today play a great role in the field of biomedical research using nanotechnology.

The proceedings of the "International Conference on Recent Advances in Spectroscopy: Theoretical, Experimental and Astrophysical Perspectives" contain both invited and contributory papers, which give the most recent results by the peers in the areas of theoretical and experimental atomic physics as well as observational astrophysics.

Bibliographic information


From the reviews:

“The individual chapters are all well-written and understandable by a non-expert … . each chapter devotes a reasonable space to introducing the relevant experimental techniques and theoretical tools used to analyse the measurements. This provides an overall context to the book, making it potentially useful to (non-astrophysical) researchers performing high-resolution spectroscopy. In summary, this volume provides a significant amount of information regarding current challenges and approaches towards understanding stellar dynamics and the chemical constitution of celestial objects through the use of spectroscopy.” (Andrew Resnick, Contemporary Physics, January, 2012)
