Atomic and molecular physics

Main domains of research include:

  • Investigations of processes and phenomena in gases and low temperature plasma, i.e. experimental and theoretical study of collisions between excited atoms and molecules that lead to spectral lines widening, excitation energy transfer, etc..
  • Laser spectroscopy pf metal and intermetal exciplexes, i.e. investigations of structure of these systems and collision processes in which they are formed.
  • Linear and nonlinear laser spectroscopy of photochemical and photophysical processes with nanosecond time resolution.
