Atomic and Molecular

Theoretical Research

Theoretical research work is being done in various areas of atomic and molecular collision physics. Emphasis is placed on investigations of electron, positron, proton collisions with atoms, ions and molecules (simple) on the ionization of atomic targets by eq and proton impacts, on the theory of superelastic scattering of electrons on laser-excited atomic targets (electron-proton coincidence measurement).

Theoretical research also involves molecular modeling and dynamic simulations of both organic and inorganic polymer systems, conducting polymers and membranes. Various first principles methods are used in the study of microscopic and dynamic behaviour of polymers. Ab initio molecular orbital and density functional theory formalisms are implemented in the computations.
