Key Research Expertise

 

·        Modelling and Simulation

 

* kinetics of atomic and molecular processes in low temperature both laboratorial and astrophysical plasmas

* dynamics of atomic collisions

* molecular dynamics

* ion beam and collinear laser beam interaction (in the frame of consideration of new kind of mass spectrometer)

* moving of ions in RF electromagnetic field – ion trap simulation

 

·        Numerical Methods/Techniques

 

* solving ordinary differential equations (developed the computer program for solving Schrodinger equation with an arbitrary potential)

Research interest

 

* Developed the method for the calculations of the wave functions and the molecular terms for the ground and several excited electronic states of quasi-one-electron molecular ions, such as Hli+, HNa+, Li2+, Na2+,LiNa+, ...etc. Besides, the dipole matrix element for the transitions between these states has been successfully calculated.

 

* Considered two classes of atomic processes (quasi-static and pure quantum mechanical approach):

- the radiative ion-atom processes: photoassociation, photodissociation and radiative charge exchange;

- the processes of chemi-ionozation during the atom-Rydberg atom collisions:asociative ionization and Penning ionization.

 

* Investigated the influence of these processes on the the kinetics of low temperature, both laboratory and astrophysical, plasmas.

 

*Developed the model of fluorescence caused by interaction of ion beam with a collinear laser beam.

 

* Developed programme for simulation of ion trap.
