International Workshop on

Advanced Techniques in Actinide Spectroscopy 2014 (ATAS 2014)

03.–07.11.2014, Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf e.V., Germany


Complementary application of various spectroscopic techniques and their combination with theoretical approaches can lead to a more profound understanding of structures, thermo dynamics and kinetics of actinide complex formation. The workshop focuses on recent advances in actinide chemistry from both a spectroscopic and theoretical point of view. It covers vibrational spectroscopy (IR and Raman), laser-induced spectroscopy (luminescence and photoacoustic), X-ray based spectroscopies (XAS, XPS), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), mass spectrometries (AMS, ESI MS), and quantum chemical calculations.

Furthermore, an inter-laboratory Round-Robin test is currently in progress, using a simple chemical system investigated by different techniques at different research institutions. The test aims at a unique comparison of molecular information obtained from the different spectroscopic and theoretical methods. An extra session is planned for comprehensive discussion of the results.
