Welcome to CMDSonline!

CMDSonline is an online webinar series intended to bring together researchers developing and applying state-of-the-art Coherent MultiDimensional Spectroscopic methods to address problems in chemistry, biology, physics, and material science. The aim of the series is to keep the CMDS community alive during the covid19 pandemic times. The webinars are scheduled as bi-weekly global presentations on recent research developments. The webinars are set up as pairs of 30 minutes talks with 15 minutes discussion time for efficient exchange of ideas, with a total duration of 1½ hour. The exact webinar time will depend on the speakers’ continents.

The webinars are free of charge but you need to register to receive Zoom links to the webinars.
