This sub-group consists of four retirees (guest workers) with different interests: J. T. Hougen (theory), W. J. Lafferty (gas-phase IR), F. J. Lovas (gas-phase MW), and A. Weber (gas-phase Raman). For details about their present research activities, click on their respective projects listed below.
Jon T. Hougen – Large-amplitude motion project
Walter J. Lafferty – Infrared studies for atmospheric atlases
Frank J. Lovas – Spectroscopic identification of interstellar molecules
The late Marilyn Jacox's (NIST staff from 1962 to 2013) research focused on matrix isolation spectra in the IR and UV-Vis. Her research projects are listed below.
