Photoions, Photoionization and Photodetachment
Gordon Research Conference

Note: This conference is currently known as "Photoionization and Photodetachment".

Dates

January 31 - February 5, 2010

Location

Hotel Galvez
Galveston, TX

Organizers

Chair:
Albert Stolow

Vice Chair:
Danielle Dowek

Meeting Description

Photoionization and photodetachment now play central roles in many emerging fields of modern atomic, molecular, chemical and optical physics. Examples include modern x-ray and synchrotron science, chemical reaction dynamics, high resolution spectroscopy, attosecond science and strong field physics, spectroscopy/dynamics in complex environments, time-resolved spectroscopies etc. The tacit theme of this conference is the unification of electron scattering with spectroscopy, wherein a serious consideration of the electronic continuum is a central aspect of the science. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers from various areas - laser-based and synchrotron-based, experimentalists and theorists, high energy and threshold, strong field and weak, physicists and chemists – all of whom share a deep interest in the “science and technology” of the electronic continuum.
