Research Strategies:

Major developments include:
* Strong field laser interactions with atoms and molecules, especially attosecond sources
* Quantum information processing, Quantum entanglement and Quantum optics
* Quantum phase transitions and superfluidity in dilute Bose-Einstein condensates
* Electron scattering by very complex targets such as the Iron Peak elements, of considerable importance in Astrophysics, and by Rydberg atoms
* Foundations of quantum mechanics
* Antimatter interactions with atoms and molecules, particularly cold antihydrogen tests of fundamental physical laws
