Photochemistry and Spectroscopy Department

Institute of Physical Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences



Welcome to the home page of the Photochemistry & Spectroscopy Department of the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences. Here you will find information on our current and past research, administrative structure, personnel, equipment, publications, current events and ongoing activities.


Our Department consists of five research teams, specializing in various areas related to photophysics, photochemistry, astrochemistry, and spectroscopy. We also have experience in spectroscopy-related areas, ranging from organic synthesis and supramolecular chemistry of photoactive systems to the construction of optical instruments.


We usually have open positions for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows interested in various aspects of spectroscopy and photophysics.


We are cooperating with many laboratories and are open to prospects of new collaborations.


We offer services and expertise through our specialized laboratories of Spectroscopy and Photochemistry, Molecular Beams, and Laser Center.
