Esemény leírása

Atomic and molecular physics is a mature field developed throughout the 20th century whilst being integral to the exploitation of quantum mechanics. However it is equally relevant to the major scientific and technological challenges of the 21st century. In this overview talk I will review several fields in which our knowledge of atomic and molecular processes is vital if we are to advance our understanding and exploit such knowledge to our advantage (e.g, in industrial processing). I will highlight some common challenges and discuss how, by developing integrated research networks, we might ensure that the European research community may assume international scientific and technical leadership.
