International Conference on Raman Spectroscopy (ICORS 2024)

July 28 – August 2, 2024

There is a deep link between Rome and the Raman effect, dating back to 1926, when Enrico Fermi took over the chair of theoretical physics at the University of Rome, boosting the famous “via Panisperna group”. Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman got his Nobel Prize in 1930, for the effect he first observed in liquids in 1928. The new discovery was highly inspirational for Franco Rasetti, the last survivor of the Panisperna group, who was the first to demonstrate the Raman effect in gases (F. Rasetti, ‘‘Raman Effect in Gases,’’ Nature 123 (1929), 205). His observations provided the first experimental evidence that the model for the atomic nucleus constituted by protons and electrons is inadequate.

Besides the strictly scientific motivations, Rome offers an ideal surrounding for its uncountable mainstream attractions and lesser-known gems.

For this reason, we’re glad to inform you that the XXVIII International Conference on Raman Spectroscopy will be held in Rome, at “Sapienza” University which, building on the legacy of Enrico Fermi’s work has been committed through the years to scientific excellence, up to the recent Nobel prize in Physics awarded to Giorgio Parisi.
