Spectroscopy of Molecular Ions in the Laboratory and in (Extraterrestrial) Space
Kos, Greece, Oct. 3rd - 6th, 2010
Many important developments are currently being made on many fronts in the
spectroscopy of molecular ions using new techniques and new observatories. This
symposium is planned to be a unique one in which laboratory spectroscopists,
observational astronomers, theorists, and physicists and chemists in related
fields will be together with plenty of time for in-depth discussions to obtain
up-to-date information and discuss future developments.
list of participants/talks so far applied is attached. More
applications are encouraged. So far the following subjects have emerged as
topics of interest and more talks on these subjects are welcome.
Other topic such as ab initio theory (Lee), ions in clusters and grains have also been mentioned.
Molecular ions discussed so far include:
H3+, (H3+ + e-), H5+, H3+(H2)n and isotopologues.
CH+, CH2+, CH3+, CH5+ and isotopologues.
Protonated C2H2, C2H4, C6H6, C10H8,
C3H+, C3H3+, C60+.
OH+, H2O+, H3O+, H5O2+ and isotopologues.
HCO+, HN2+, HCNH+, N2OH+, H2NOH+, SH3+.
H-, C6H-, C4H-, C2H-, CN-, NCO-, and other anions.
Molecular ions in clusters and on grains.
The first notice of SMILES sent on March 15, the second notice sent on April 15, the third notice (logistics) sent on June 22 and the fourth notice sent on August 3 are attached. The symposium is organized as a part of ICCMSE 2010 (International Conference of Computational Methods in Sciences and Engineering) but is independent of it in the scientific content.
