Laboratory for Atomic Collision Processes
Laboratorija za fiziku atomskih sudarnih procesa
Projects and Publications ,
Our research ranges from elementary processes in atomic systems to luminescence properties of nanoscale materials;
from simple atoms to biomolecules with applications for medicine, radiation damage and environmental science.
Collisional processes of electrons, 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.
Theoretical studies are oriented towards uderstanding of atomic particle scattering on 2-D periodic structures, interactions of atoms with strong laser fields, quantum dots in EM fields and quantum information theory.
There are three main experimental set-ups currently running: UGRA, TR-LIS and OHRHA. All of these have openings for postgraduate research projects.
Much experiance has been accumulated in the design of electron spectrometers, formation of electron beams, particle detection, time-resolved laser spectroscopy
as well as in high vacuum technology. We mantain database on electron scattering processes - BEAMDB.
Researchers are collaborating with other groups on experiments with synchrotron radiation at SOLEIL and ELETTRA and atomic/molecular theoretical groups.

Current areas of research activities are:
(1) UGRA - Electron Spectrometer for Angular Distributions -
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
(4) Interaction of synchrotron radiation with atoms and molecules. Radiation damage. Ultrafast chemistry.
(7) AM Theory Group link
Concluded experimental set-ups:
- (1) ESMA - Electron Spectrometer for Metal Atoms - was
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.
- (2) SELE - Stepwise Electron Laser Excitation - was an
apparatus, which was intended 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.
- (3) SPEPRA - Threshold Electron Spectrometer - was a high
resolution electron spectrometer for collecting threshold
excitation spectra of atoms and/or molecules.
- (4) ZAGA - An apparatus for absolute measurements of
ionisation cross sections of atoms and molecules by electron impact.
- (5) Electron Transmission Through Nanocapillaries - Study of transmission of electrons through nanocapillarie and interaction of electrons with surfaces
