Molecular Spectroscopy and Quantum Dynamics, an exciting new work edited by Professors Martin Quack and Roberto Marquardt, contains comprehensive information on the current state-of-the-art experimental and theoretical methods and techniques used to unravel ultra-fast phenomena in atoms, molecules and condensed matter, along with future perspectives on the field.

Key Features

  • Contains new insights into the quantum dynamics and spectroscopy of electronic and nuclear motion
  • Presents the most recent developments in the detection and interpretation of ultra-fast phenomena
  • Includes a discussion of the importance of these phenomena for the understanding of chemical reaction dynamics and kinetics in relation to molecular spectra and structure


Undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral students and industry professionals working in the field of molecular spectroscopy and quantum dynamics
