General Information:

The principal research interests of the Division are in atomic and molecular processes. PPARC funds research into the determination of accurate atomic data for use in astrophysical modelling. Close collaboration is maintained with the Astronomy and Planetary Science Division of the School.

The major areas supported by PPARC are:

  • The calculation of oscillator strengths/transition probabilities in atoms and ions, for use in the determination of interstellar and stellar abundances and in emission line diagnostics.
  • The calculation of electron excitation rates, for use in the analysis of spectral observations from various satellite missions.
  • The study of electron-ion collisions in iron peak elements.
