As rapidly increasing computational resources become available, some areas of experiment are already being supplanted by predictive-level theoretical spectroscopy. Other areas of experimental spectroscopy, concerned with more complex molecular systems, can presently help to further develop theory by providing benchmarks. Finally, certain areas of molecular spectroscopy (e.g., under extreme conditions) will remain inaccessible to accurate computational prediction for quite a while yet. Nevertheless, even here useful physical insight will result from quantum-chemical model calculations.

The talks of this symposium are intended to illustrate and further encourage this synergy between modern spectroscopy and state-of-the-art quantum-chemical calculations − in terms of examples ranging from molecules in gas-phase, through surface-bound to interacting-in-condensed-phase.

The main topic of the Bunsentagung 2013 focuses on state-of-the-art research in the fields of theoretical spectroscopy as well as molecular characterisation using experimental spectroscopy guided by quantum chemistry. This also includes recent advances in experimental techniques that probe molecules in gas and condensed phases under precisely defined/controlled conditions as well as new developments in describing such systems theoretically at a predictive level.
