Laboratory for Atomic Collision Processes
Laboratorija za fiziku atomskih sudarnih procesa
Projects and Publications ,
Collisions between electrons and atomic particles (atoms and
molecules) in both ground and excited states have been of broad
interest in science and application. Processes like elastic
scattering, excitation, ionization and autoionization,
dissociative attachment, and others are studied. Research
activities within the Laboratory for atomic collision processes
are aimed at quantifying and understanding the fundamental basis
for these processes. There are three main experimental set-ups currently
running: UGRA, TR-LIS and OHRHA. All of these
have openings for postgraduate research projects and
descriptions of these can be found under Postgraduate Research
Projects. Much experiance has been accumulated in the design of
electron spectrometers, formation of electron beams, particle
detection, as well as in high vacuum technology.
Researchers are collaborating with other groups on experiments with
synchrotron radioation at SOLEIL and ELETTRA.

Current areas of research activities are:
(1) ESMA - Electron Spectrometer for Metal Atoms - is
a high resolution hemispherical electron spectrometer designed
for the study of differential cross sections of elastic and
inelastic scattering of intermediate energy electrons (10-100 eV)
by metal atoms.

is an electron spectrometer with high current electron beam gun and
double mirror cylindrical analyser designed for measuring angular
distribution of ionic fragments from molecular dissociation upon
(3) SELE - Stepwise Electron Laser Excitation - is an
apparatus, currently in preparation status, which is designed for
simultaneous excitation of atoms by electron beam and laser beam
in order to investigate processes of electron excitation of
fine-structure levels as well as the excitation of excited atoms.
It utilizes an cylindrical throchoidal monocromator as a source
of monoenergetic electrons.
