Abstract : With the termination of my Air Force project, this is the last report for my effort on solid hydrogen spectroscopy. It has been an extremely inspiring period of ten years working with a group of brilliant students. We have practically created a new field, and the results my students obtained will remain as the cornerstone of future development. I am extremely grateful to AFOSR and taxpayers for supporting our effort. The field is now just about to find its application to matrix spectroscopy, cryogenic chemical kinetics, solid charge diagnosis, and non-linear optics, etc., and it is heartbreaking on my part to have to terminate our research, but luckily several groups have picked up the momentum. I shall watch the future development with great aspiration.
