A 2012 article by CRF researchers David Chandler (in Sandia’s Transportation Energy Center) and the late Kevin Strecker, “Dual-etalon frequency-comb cavity ringdown spectrometer,” was chosen by *The* *Journal of Chemical Physics* as one of 80 articles to highlight the 80 years of outstanding work published in the journal.

“I am honored that this paper was selected to highlight the research that *The Journal of Chemical Physics* is proud of and wants to attract. I am especially happy as it honors the brilliant Kevin Strecker who died in 2012, soon after this paper was published,” said David. “Kevin and I designed, demonstrated, and patented this new type of Fourier transform spectrometer that when fully developed it will be a new tool for the study of many sorts of spectroscopy and the monitoring of chemical systems.”

Recently retired CRF researcher Steve Binkley is an author on a 1982 paper also named among the journal’s 80th Anniversary Collection: “Self-consistent molecular orbital methods. XXIII. A polarization-type basis set for second-row elements.”

The 80th Anniversary Collection includes seminal papers dating back to 1933 on

- electronic structure methods,
- potential energy surfaces,
- transition states and reaction pathways,
- Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics simulation methods and applications,
- time-dependent methods in quantum dynamics,
- electron transfer reactions, advances in nuclear magnetic resonance methods, and
- spectroscopic methods and formalisms including multidimensional techniques with applications ranging from water to proteins.
