Norwegian-Russian Winter School invites participants

Norwegian-Russian Winter School

Experimental advanced fluorescence spectroscopy of organic molecules and biological systems

January 25-February 9, 2020

Tomsk, Russia


Tomsk State University invites undergraduate and graduate students and young researchers to participate in the Norwegian-Russian Winter School "Experimental Advanced Fluorescence Spectroscopy of Organic Molecules and Biological Systems". The school program includes lectures, practical exercises, laboratory work and covers the following topics:

1.      Fluorescence spectroscopy of molecules and organic metal complexes

2.      Multiphoton microscopy and machine learning of the biosystem. Visualization of biological tissues

3.      Interaction-induced electric properties of the van der Waals complexes

4.      Multiphoton fluorescence excitation: new spectral windows for biological nonlinear microscopy

5.      Measurement and Modeling of Air Broadened Methane Absorption in the MERLIN Spectral Region at Low Temperatures

6.      FTIR spectroscopy

7.      Confocal microscopy

8.      Photonics. Photophysical properties. The rate constants of radiative and radiationless electronic transitions


The school is organized jointly by UiT The Arctic University of Norway, University of Oslo (Norway), St. Petersburg University (Russia), Tomsk State University (Russia) and financially supported by the joint Norwegian-Russian scientific and educational project Optical Probe Sensors at Biological Environments (OPS@BE).
