RESEARCH

ATOMIC ASTROPHYSICS & NANOBIOMEDICINE: (click a topic for brief outline)

  • Atomic Astrophyiscs
  • Photoionization
  • Electron-ion recombination
  • Radiative transition probabilities
  • Electron-ion scattering
  • Theoretical Spectroscopy - Method description in "Fine structure transitions in Fe~XIV"
  • Dielectronic Satellite Lines

  • A member of the international collaborations, the Opacity Project and the Iron Project , to calculate accurate atomic parameters for astrophysically abundant atoms and ions.
    - Results are available in the database NORAD-Atomic-Data

  • Co-leader: Multi-disciplinary Biomedical Nanoscience program "Resonant Nano-Plasma Theranostics" (RNPT) for Cancer Treatment. Astronomy, Physics, Chemistry, Pathology, Radiation Oncology, Group picture 2013

    - Description of RNPT in International Symposium of Molecular Spectroscopy, presentation, 2010,

    - RNPT Research Activities and Publications

    - RNPT is referred to as one of the four important contributions of astronomy to human life: GPS, wireless internet, RNPT, and laser eye surgery (Astronomy magazine, 2012).

  • The atomic processes under investigation are dominant in astrophysical plasmas. The results are applicable to both astrophysical and laboratory plasmas for spectral and diagnostic analysis.
  • Theoretical calculations employ state-of-the-art quantum mechanical techniques based on the ab initio R-matrix method in the close coupling approximation.
  • A significant part of the research is under the two international projects, the Opacity Project and the Iron Project, for calculating accurate atomic parameters for astrophysically abundant atoms and ions, and the interdisciplinary program on nanoscience.
  • Applications: Fe I - Fe III in 1Zwicky1
