Advanced Techniques in Actinide Spectroscopy (ATAS) 2014
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.
International Workshop on Advanced Techniques in Actinide Spectroscopy (ATAS) 2012
ATAS 2012 was sucessful, productive and enjoyable. Different topics of up-to-date actinide spectroscopy were covered, including new techniques of NMR, vibrational, luminescence, and x-ray absorption spectroscopy. Basic questions on applicability, sampling, and comparability between different methods but also applications in engineering and environmental sciences were discussed. Scientific highlights were the invited talks and in particular many talks of young scientists.
