ATOMIC ASTROPHYSICS AND SPECTROSCOPY
This homepage reports interdisciplinary research by the OSU group, with senior Research Scientist Sultana Nahar and several students, postdocs, and collaborators.
Research interests are theoretical studies of radiative and collisional atomic processes, and spectral formation in astrophysical and laboratory plasmas - an integrated program of atomic physics, astrophysics, and plasma physics.
This website will also report on the activties of a new cross-disciplinary program in biophysics: Computational Nanoscience and Biomedical Spectroscopy. Researchers include Sultana Nahar (Astronomy), Chris Orban (Physics), Russell Pitzer (Chemistry), Erica Bell (Radiation Oncology), Enam Chowdhury (Physics), Yan Yu (Thomas Jefferson University Medical School), Werner Eissner (University of Stuttgart), Max Montenegro (Universidad Catholica de Chile), Chiranjib Sur (IBM, India), and students Sara Lim (Biophysics Graduate Program), Ethan Palay, Michael Dance.
Recent developments entail theoretical and experimental studies to implement a new methodology, RESONANT NANO-PLASMA THERANOSTICS , based on the use of monochromatic X-ray sources for imaging, therapy and diagnostics (theranostics) in cancer research, as reported in the following news items.

3. Tailored X-rays for cancer, news story published in Nature-India, 29 November 2009.
4. FROM ASTROPHYSICS TO BIOMEDICINE VIA NANOTECHNOLGY (In OSUToday)
The OSU group represents the U.S. participants in the international
Opacity Project (OP) , and the
Iron Project (IP/RmaX) Network aimed at large-scale
atomic calculations using the relativistic R-matrix method for
iron-peak elements and X-ray astrophysics.
TIPTOPBASE and OPSERVER offer OP and IP atomic data, and on-line
calculation of "customized" astrophysical opacities, at the Ohio Supercomputer
Center in Columbus Ohio.
