Our research involves laser spectroscopy techniques applied to the studies of new interesting photochemical problems in molecular beams. High-resolution electronic spectroscopy is applied to isolated species and molecular complexes formed in the supersonic beam. A range of spectroscopic methods: fluorescence excitation and emission, two-photon ionization, hole-burning spectroscopy have been employed. The laser spectroscopy is often combined with time-of-flight spectrometry to obtain mass-selective information. Most attention was paid to of photoreactive systems undergoing an excited state proton transfer.

We are also exploring the properties of liquid helium nanodroplets using high resolution laser spectroscopy. Helium droplets provide us with a unique spectroscopic environment that is "perfect" to study hydrogen-bonded clusters, biomolecules, radicals and ions.
