Wolfgang Stahl (born 01 April 1956 in Kiel – died 29 August 2020 in Aachen) was a German spectroscopist. He was a professor at the RWTH Aachen University.


Wolfgang Stahl received his doctorate in 1987 at the University of Kiel.[1] In 1992, he finished his habilitation in physical chemistry at the University of Kiel.[1] Since 1995, he is professor for molecular spectroscopy at the RWTH Aachen University.[1]


His research focused on following topics in the field of microwave spectroscopy:[2]

  • Large amplitude motions in molecules
  • Theory of rotational spectra
  • Quantum mechanical and group theoretical calculation
  • Nuclear quadrupole coupling

Selected publications

He published 149 journal articles.[3]
