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:
Indian Institute of Technology (Indian School of Mines) (IIT(ISM))
Our main focus is on electron, positron and photon scattering from atomic and molecular targets. These scattering studies are performed theoretically over an extensive energy range (~0 to 10 keV), which is of enormous importance to the atomic and molecular physics community. The local chemistry of any environment where such processes takes place primarily depended on these reactions. Hence, the prediction of cross sections and reaction rates are of utmost importance. They are important to technological plasma, astrophysics, semiconductor industry, atmospheric physics and biological sciences. We use optical potential and R-matrix methods in our calculation.
