Summary on Grant Application Form
The proposal embodies research vital to maintain and enhance a UK world-lead in crucial and fundamental areas of theoretical/computational atomic, molecular and optical physics involving multiphoton, electron collision and Bose-Einstein Condensation processes. CSAR and HPC(X) resource is identified and requested for five areas in multiphoton absorption, four areas in electron collisions and two areas in Bose-Einstein condensation. The five areas in multiphoton absorption are: (1) Laser-driven helium (2) Ultra-fast processes in multiphoton interactions with molecules; (3) Non-dipole and relativistic effects in intense laser-atom interactions; (4) R-matrix (Floquet and Time-Dependent); (5) Laser-heated clusters. The four areas in electron collisions are: (1) Electron collisions with complex atoms/ions; (2) Electron impact excitation/ionization of H-like atoms/ions at intermediate energies using 2D R-matrix propagation; (3) (e,2e) and (e,3e) collisions; (4) Positrons, positronium and anti-hydrogen. The two problems in Bose Einstein Condensation are: (1) Matter waves; (2) Superfluidity in ultracold gases.
