About these proceedings

Introduction

This volume presents the Proceedings of the Institute “New Development in Optics and Related Fields,” held in Erice, Sicily, Italy, from the 6th to the 21st of June, 2005. This meeting was organized by the International School of Atomic and Molecular Spectroscopy of the “Ettore Majorana” Center for Scientific Culture. The purpose of this Institute was to provide a comprehensive and coherent treatment of the new techniques and contemporary developments in optics and related fields. Several lectures of the course addressed directly the technologies required for the detection and identification of chemical and biological threats; other lectures considered the possible applications of new techniques and materials to the detection and identification of such threats. Each lecturer developed a coherent section of the program starting at a somewhat fundamental level and ultimately reaching the frontier of knowledge in the field in a systematic and didactic fashion. The formal lectures were complemented and illustrated by additional seminars and discussions. The course was addressed to workers in spectrosco- related fields from universities, laboratories and industries. Senior scientists were encouraged to participate. The Institute provided the participants with an opportunity to present their research work in the form of short seminars or posters. The secretary of the course was Ottavio Forte.
