Spectroscopy, Quantum Chemistry and Atmospheric Remote Sensing (SQUARES)

Faculty of Sciences | Chemistry

(Code: ULB165)

Person in charge of the unit : COHEUR Pierre-François.

The ''Service de Chimie quantique et Photophysique'' (previously ''Service de Chimie Physique Moléculaire'') is active in the field of physical chemistry.
The research focuses on the internal structure of atoms and molecules and their related reactivity. We interrogate species using light and perform high
resolution spectroscopic experiments with Fourier transform interferometers and lasers. We simultaneously calculate their properties using computers with ab
initio time dependent and independent methods. We are most concerned by the role the species we investigate play in Earth's atmospheric processes, and in
other planetary and stellar atmospheres as well as in the interstellar space. Besides the development and use of state-of-the-art experimental and
theoretical investigation means in the laboratory, we participate to remote sensing satellite missions and perform ground based validation measurements. Theoretical
modeling results from both our laboratory and remote sensing activities. Our research activities are detailed under the following three main themes: 1.
Experimental Molecular Chemical Physics 2. Quantum Chemistry and Atomic Physics 3. Spectroscopy of the Atmosphere
