Molecular and Laser Spectroscopy: Advances and Applications provides students and researchers with an up-to-date understanding of the fast-developing area of molecular and laser spectroscopy. Editor V.P. Gupta has brought together the eminent scientists on a selection of topics to develop a systematic approach, first covering basic principles needed to understand each cutting-edge technique and application. This book acts as a standard reference for advanced students of molecular and laser spectroscopy and as a graduate text for new entrants in the field. The book covers a wide range of applications of molecular and laser spectroscopy in diverse areas ranging from materials to medicine and defence, biomedical research, environmental monitoring, forensic investigations, food and agriculture, and chemical, pharmaceutical and petrochemical processes. Researchers and scientific personnel in these fields will learn the latest techniques in order to put them to practical use in their work.

V.P. Gupta, Philosophy Doctor in Physics and Mathematics (1967) from Moscow (USSR), is an academician and researcher of long standing, with 45 years of teaching and research experience. He has held important positions of Professor and Chairman, Department of Physics, University of Jammu, Jammu-Tawi, India; Visiting Professor of Chemistry, Universite de Provence, Marseille, France; Professor and Chairman, Department of Physics, University of Calabar, Calabar, Nigeria; Professor Emeritus (Emeritus Fellow), University Grants Commission (UGC), India; Emeritus Scientist, Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR), India; Emeritus Scientist, All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE), India; Visiting Scientist/Fellow, University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland; and International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy. The major areas of his research interest are quantum chemistry, molecular spectroscopy and molecular structure, matrix isolation infrared studies, astrochemistry and laser spectroscopy in which he has approximately one hundred research publications in refereed journals. He has written two books, including a translation from Russian into English. V.P. Gupta has successfully executed 16 scientific research projects and a book-writing project supported by various funding agencies of the Government of India such as the Department of Science and Technology (DST), UGC, CSIR, AICTE, and Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), Bangalore. His areas of current interest in theoretical chemistry are related to the accurate prediction of chemical structures, molecular properties and electronic and vibrational spectra, formation of molecules under extraterrestrial conditions and their spectroscopic characterization, and characterization of drugs.
