- Development of theory, methods and codes to study ion-atom and ion-molecule collisions.
Most of the research deals with the use of the molecular method to describe the collisional event
(which may include vibrational excitation, electronic excitation, charge transfer and ionization) at low
and intermediate energies (from meV/amu to keV/amu).
Classical mechanics is also employed to study electron capture and ionization from medium to high energy collisions.
For further details, see our methods and codes pages.
- Application to the calculation of cross sections.
These developments are applied to the calculation of cross sections and rates of interest in several fields, including
astronomy, fusion research, cancer therapy.
