Rao Prize for Ju Hyeon Lee
South Korean PhD student Ju Hyeon Lee, whose research focuses on spectroscopy and control of chiral molecules, has been awarded one of the esteemed Rao Prizes at the 2023 International Symposium on Molecular Spectroscopy. This recognition highlights her significant contributions to the field of molecular spectroscopy, positioning her among the notable scholars in this area of study.
Ju Hyeon Lee is currently pursuing her doctoral studies in the "Controlled Molecules group" led by Dr. Sandra Eiberberger-Arias at the Department of Molecular Physics at the Fritz-Haber-Institut der MPG. Her exceptional work has garnered the attention and respect of her peers, leading to this well-deserved acknowledgment.
At the 2023 International Symposium on Molecular Spectroscopy, Ms. Lee presented her research titled "Quantum State Control Of Chiral Molecules" which was selected by the panel of judges as one of the top three presentations, earning her the prestigious Rao Prize.
Ju Hyeon Lee will be formally presented with her award at the June 2024 Symposium.
The International Symposium on Molecular Spectroscopy is a premier annual event in the field, bringing together experts, researchers, and emerging talents.
The Symposium encompasses a wide range of topics, spanning from theory to experiment, gas-phase to condensed-phase spectroscopy, and low to ultra-high resolution techniques. It explores spectroscopy across the electromagnetic spectrum, from microwave to ultraviolet, and delves into applications in fields such as astronomy and atmospheric science. Each year's meeting also features three "mini-symposia" dedicated to special interest topics.
Ju Hyeon Lee's accomplishment exemplifies the dedication and innovation that drive progress in the field of molecular spectroscopy. Her recognition with the Rao Prize underscores the importance of her work and its potential impact on our understanding of molecular science.
