Course content

Our area of research is the study of molecular physics. We are interested in developing and applying, theoretical and computational tools to describe the multielectron dynamics of molecular systems. Specifically, we study electron scattering from molecules and in particular the formation of scattering resonances that may lead to the dissociation of the target molecule. The software we develop is also used to model photoionization and other photon-induced- phenomena. Theoretical studies also include study of positron interactions with molecules.
