About Us

This site briefly summarizes the techniques and instrumentation used in the scientific research and developments of analytical photothermal spectroscopy in Moscow State University.

The Background

The group was founded at the Chemistry Department of M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University in 1986 under the supervision of Prof. Yuri Ya. Kuzyakov, the dean of the Department and Prof. Ivan P. Alimarin, the full Member of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR and the head of the Analytical Chemistry Division of the University and the head on the Council of the Analytical Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. From 1991 it is headed by Dr. Mikhail A. Proskurnin.

The group was created as a workgroup dealing with various problems of thermooptical (photothermal) laser spectrometry (initially, thermal lensing only) in various aspects of analytical chemistry, analytical instrumentation, and chemical analysis. With time, the mainstream of group scientific interests remained the same, although it became more diverse covering the problems of hyphenated techniques, the analysis of solids and surfaces, microscopic variants of photothermal spectroscopy, and micro-Total Analysis Systems or (mTAS).
