International Symposium

Prof. Matsumoto presented the oral talk on “Charge resonance interaction in pyrrole dimer cation and its solvated clusters probed by IR spectroscopy” in 2nd International Symposium of JSPS Core-to-Core Program on “Molecular Recognition Mechanism between Flexible Molecules”. This symposium has been held on 10-11 March 2022, via zoom online.

Bilateral program

Our submission to “The Bilateral program on Open Partnership Joint Research Project” was successfully accepted from JSPS. Our project title is “Study on charge resonance interaction in aromatic dimers and clusters probed by infrared spectroscopy”. The project team consists of Berlin Tech. (Prof. Otto Dopfer), Ochanomizu U. (Prof. Mitsuhiko Miyazaki), and Shizuoka U.

JSPS Core-to-Core Program on “Molecular Recognition Mechanism between Flexible Molecules”

Prof. Matsumoto has joined as a research member  in the JSPS Core-to-Core Program on “Molecular Recognition Mechanism between Flexible Molecules”. This project consists of Japanese, German and French molecular cluster research teams. The team is coordinated by Prof. Masaaki Fujii (Tokyo Tech., Japan), Prof. Otto Dopfer (TU Berlin, Germany) and Prof. Anne Zehnacker-Rentien (U. Paris-Saclay). We proceed IR spectroscopy of charge resonance aromatic dimers and clusters together with Prof. Otto Dopfer, Berlin.
