GNAMPP

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)

Atomic and Molecular Physics Group, Institute of Experimental Physics I

Justus Liebig University (JLU), Giessen

The Atomic and Molecular Physics Group at the Justus Liebig University Giessen specializes in the physics of atomic collisions. The research covers fundamental questions of atomic and molecular structure and collision dynamics as well as applications in atomic and molecular spectroscopy, astrophysics, and plasma physics. The group develops electron and ion sources and performs experiments with charged particle beams (electrons, highly charged ions, molecular ions, cluster ions) at an in house electron-ion crossed-beams setup, at the ion storage rings at FAIR/GSI, at the Heidelberg cryogenic storage ring CSR, and at the Hamburg synchrotron light source PETRA III.
