Welcome to the Planetary Spectroscopy Team of
Professor Alian Wang
My team uses
the physical methods (atomic and molecular spectroscopy) to study…
the chemical properties (mineralogy, geochemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics) of…
the geologic bodies (planets, satellites, asteroids, comets) and their surface/subsurface materials.
