Prof. Andrew Ellis elected Chair of the Molecular Physics Group (MPG) of the Institute of Physics



Professor Andrew Ellis from the Department of Chemistry has been elected as Chair of the Molecular Physics Group (MPG) of the Institute of Physics. The Institute of Physics has a number of specialist sub-groups that focus on particular topics and which try to represent the specific interests of members working in these areas. Molecular Physics is a flourishing interdisciplinary field of research in the United Kingdom, encompassing theoretical and experimental activity in many areas such as molecular reaction dynamics, laser chemistry/physics, spectroscopy, quantum chemistry, surfaces, and solid state physics. Molecular physicists work at the interface of physics and chemistry and the primary objective of the MPG is to provide a forum for the promotion of this rapidly developing field of research, including organising conferences and symposia. It also seeks to raise the profile of Molecular Physics, to develop closer links between chemists and physicists, and to liaise with Molecular Physics groups overseas.
