Photoionization & Photodetachment
This conference brings together scientists interested in a range of basic phenomena linked to the ejection of electrons from atoms and molecules by absorption of light. Photoionization is the main interaction between sunlight and the outer atmospheres of the Earth and other planets; it is implicated in the formation and destruction of molecules in astrophysical and plasma environments and technologically in the operation of lasers and many advanced analytical techniques. Photodetachment studies of negative ions can also yield unique insights into the energetics and dynamics of transient neutral species. The scope of the meeting has traditionally spanned the range of phenomena from atomic physics to biological and analytical applications.
What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.
This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "Photoionization & Photodetachment" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS)
series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History
section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here
.What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
