Honorary Members

The most recent Honorary Members of the Society were recognized in 2015.  At that time the Board of Managers of the Coblentz Society elected two new Honorary Members, Fran Adar, for her pioneering developments in the application and acceptance of Raman spectroscopy, and John Chalmers, for the development and application of vibrational spectroscopic methods to solve industrial problems

The Society's By-Laws state the following with regards to Honorary Members "The Board of Management at its discretion, and by the affirmative vote of two-thirds of the Managers, may elect as Honorary Members of the Society individuals who are deemed to have made outstanding contributions to the field of vibrational spectroscopy or to any other field related to the purposes of the Society."
Nominations are solicited for Honorary Membership in the Society for consideration in 2018. Please send nominations to the Coblentz Society president.
