Molecular Spectroscopy

Welcome to the Molecular Spectroscopy Group. The group is responsible for four spectrometers: Iris, Osiris, Tosca and Vesuvio. The instruments are used for investigations of dynamics in condensed matter science including: chemistry, physics, biology, materials science and geology.

The group will hold its next Molecular Spectroscopy Science Meeting at the Cosener’s House, Abingdon, on the 9th & 10th of November 2016. For more information on our User Group click here.

For the latest developments in our group and suite of instruments, please read our September 2015 Newsletter out now!

The instruments in the group span the energy range from the (almost) zero of quasielastic and tunnelling spectroscopy (0 - 10 meV, 0 - 80 cm-1) with IRIS and OSIRIS, through the traditional vibrational spectroscopy region (2 - 500 meV, 16 - 4000 cm-1) with Tosca, up to very high energies (>5 eV, >40,000 cm-1) with Vesuvio. 

For more detailed information on each of the instruments and its associated science, please refer to their specific websites. To discuss an application for beamtime to ISIS please contact either the group leader Prof. Felix Fernandez Alonso or the instrument scientist.
