Most of the Laser Spectroscopy Group is located at the" target="_blank">Department of Chemistry of the University of Helsinki. A part of our team is in Tampere, where we are members of the Photonics Research Community of Tampere University.

Our team works in close collaboration with the Molecular Spectroscopy and Theoretical Chemistry Group of Prof. Lauri Halonen. Some of our group members are also affiliated with Prof. Halonen's group. Both research groups work in the field of physical chemistry and belong to Molecular Science Unit of the University of Helsinki.
