Prof. Siva Umapathy Laser Spectroscopy Group
Laser Spectroscopy Group is a part of the department of Inorganic and Physical Chemistry (IPC) and Instrumentation and Applied Physics (IAP) in India's premier research institute. We aim to understand the structure and dynamics of molecules as well as structural uniqueness of molecular entities in complex biological systems like bacteria, cells and tissues using vibrational spectroscopic techniques – Raman and Infra-red. In other words, we explore science from a ‘world' where ‘everything’ is vibrating..
We are trying to understand structure and dynamics of molecules using different spectroscopic techniques and also trying to understand structural uniqueness of molecular entities in complex biological systems like single cells (cancer and normal) and tissues.
