We shall briefly describe the main research areas, now in progress in our molecular beam and laser group. The current activity includes our traditional molecular beam work as well as other experiments carried out in the new labs of our Institute. Essentially we present here the current progress on Crossed-beam and Beam-gas Chemilumine scence, Laser-induced Beam Surface Reaction, Laser Analytical Chemistry, Laser-initiated Reactions Studies by Chemiluminescence and Laser-induced Fluorescence, Spectroscopy and Structure of van der Waals molecules. For each section recent results are presented. Due to the basic scope of the present progress report the emphasis is made on the new experimental developments as well as on the capabilities of both basic and applied research techniques now operative in our group.
