The Global Network for the Atomic and Molecular Physics of Plasmas (GNAMPP) is a consortium of research groups working in the area of fundamental atomic and molecular physics relevant to plasma processes. Its focus is on promoting collaboration and communication between experimentalists and theoreticians to improve the quality and completeness of data used in modelling and interpreting fusion plasmas.

GNAMPP provides a forum for the evaluation, validation and dissemination of data, the benchmarking of relevant modelling codes and the formulation of research guidelines and priorities.

The Scientific Advisory Committee is:

  • Yaming Zou (Fudan University)
  • José Crespo López-Urrutia (Max-Planck-Institut für Kernphysik)
  • Ursel Fantz (IPP-Garching)
  • Xinwen Ma (Lanzhou Institute of Chemical Physics)
  • Stefan Schippers (Justus Liebig University)

The Nobuyuki Nakamura Laboratory seeks to elucidate the phenomena associated with the essential properties of highly-charged ions from the perspective of atomic physics and to develop highly-charged ion sources that enable such research.

In 1997, Professor Ohtani and Associate Professor Nakamura in the Institute for Laser Science at the University of Electro-Communications built the Tokyo-EBIT, one of the world’s largest, highest-performance, highly-charged ion sources. They subsequently designed and built a compact highly-charged ion source called CoBIT, which measures barely one-sixth the size of the Tokyo-EBIT, yet retains its fundamental structures.
