Welcome Message from Prof Purushottam Chakraborty, Ph.D., P.R.S to Euro Spectroscopy 2018

Prof Purushottam Chakraborty, Ph.D., P.R.S

Dear Colleagues, Researchers, and Friends,

On behalf of the 8th World Congress on Spectroscopy and Analytical Techniques (Euro Spectroscopy 2018) – an eminent international conference, I gloriously invite you all to join and participate in this spectacular international conference on spectroscopy and analytical techniques to be held in Stockholm, Sweden during September 11 -12, 2018. Your potential research contribution flooded with an impulsive exchange of your novel scientific ideas will gorgeously bring forth the conference an enormous success for all intents and purposes.

As you are aware, Spectroscopy – the theme of the conference – is a study of how electromagnetic radiation interacts with matter. Therefore, in effect, it spawns a process of absorption and emission of electromagnetic radiation by the matter. Furthermore, the process includes the interactions between photons and particles such as electrons, protons, and ions, etc. as a function of their collision energy. Spectroscopic analysis with its wide flexibility and versatility has been crucial in the development of the most fundamental theories in physics, including quantum mechanics, the special and general theories of relativity, quantum electrodynamics, etc. Spectroscopic analysis is necessary to determine the structure and functional groups in organic compounds. Spectroscopy, as applied to high-energy collisions, plays a pivotal-tool in developing a scientific understanding not only of the electromagnetic force but also of the strong and weak nuclear forces. Certain types of microwave, optical, and gamma-ray spectroscopy are capable of measuring infinitesimal frequency shifts in narrow spectroscopic lines. The Frequency shifts can be observed with ultrahigh resolution laser-based spectroscopic techniques.

The precision analysis of materials, including low-dimensional condensed matter systems, is an area of significant importance in materials science and has caused an ever-increasing interest amongst the scientific community. An ideal approach to test our ideas about the physics of low-dimensional systems lies not only in traditional solids like metals and semiconductors but also in liquids, polymers and other organic materials, referred to as ‘soft condensed matter’. As the technological advances have been made, a wide range of analytical techniques has come up to characterize materials of inherent complexities that are markedly different from those of the bulk systems. Since each technique has its own characteristics with particular advantages over the other, complementary analytical tools are generally used for characterizations that are at least adequate for the purpose of the user. As a matter of fact, the complete characterization of a material is hardly possible in practice because of far more complexity of the low-dimensional nanostructures. With the rapid advancement in the spectroscopy techniques related to materials analysis, parallel developments in the ion-beam methods have been made concomitantly generating a great deal of current popularity for their uses in the analyses of materials.

The conference will highlight the perception of spectroscopy from fundamental aspects to applications in wide-ranging interdisciplinary areas, followed by imparting a rigorous insight on the proficient use of various state-of-the-art analytical techniques. I am confident your knowledge, expertise and lively participation with scientific fortitude will turn the conference into a global inclusive scientific event. I also hope you will enjoy the conference to a great extent and your vibrant interaction through mutual exchange of innovative ideas will be of immense scientific accomplishment not only to the delegates of the conference but also to the entire spectroscopy community of the world. I wish the conference a grand success!

About Conference

Participants across the globe are attending prestigious “8th World Congress on Spectroscopy and Analytical Techniques” going to be held on September 11-12, 2018 at Stockholm, Sweden

Euro Spectroscopy 2018 is being organized underlining the theme “Gaining critical insights in advancements in Spectroscopy and Analytical Techniques”.The program is a grand amalgamation of formats ranging from keynote sessions featuring many well-known and thought to provoke speakers to intense and highly interactive discussions which are intended in a way where researchers and technical staff from both academia and industry can interact creating a platform for the exchange of thoughts.

Spectroscopy is a study of absorption and emission of light and other radiation by matter, as related to the dependence of these processes on the wavelength of the radiation. More recently, the definition has been expanded to include the study of the interactions between particles such as electrons, protons, and ions, as well as their interaction with other particles as a function of their collision energy. Spectroscopic analysis has been crucial in the development of the most fundamental theories in physics including quantum mechanics, the special and general theories of relativity, and quantum electrodynamicsSpectroscopy, as applied to high-energy collisions, has been a key tool in developing the scientific understanding not only of the electromagnetic force but also of the strong and weak nuclear forces.Spectroscopic techniques have been applied in virtually all technical fields of science and technology.
