Multi-electronic Processes in Collisions Involving Charged Particles and Photons with Atoms and Molecules

Frontiers in Nuclear and Particle Physics is a book series that brings together scholarly reviews on the physics of nuclear particles and associated theories. The scope of the series includes both theoretical and practical aspects of research in the field. The series will enable readers to update their knowledge about both fundamental and advanced concepts in nuclear physics.

The scope of the series will also cover breakthroughs in research in the field, including ionization studies, nuclear particle behavior, quantum theory, atomic and molecular physics, atomic and particle energy calculations and much more. The series is essential reading for scholars, teachers and researchers who are involved in advanced graduate and post doctorate programs.

Topics covered in the volume include:

  • Ionization experiments
  • Kinetic energy studies of photoexcited carbon dichloride and tetrachloride molecules
  • Selective excision of biomolecules in electron transfer experiments
  • Particle and antiparticle collisions with rare gases
  • Multiple scattering in electron Rutherford scattering spectroscopy
  • Four-body effects in the 6He58 +58Ni scattering
  • Twin atoms from doubly excited states of the hydrogen molecule


About The Author:

Dr. Antonio Santos (PhD in Atomic Physics at Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro) is Associate Professor of Physics at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. Currently, he is the Vice-Head of the Physics Institute of that University. He is an experimentalist who specializes in inelastic interactions between atomic and molecular particles. Over the years, he has used measurements of target ion production to identify ionization by electrons, positrons, photons and ion impact. These studies cover topics such as single and multiple ionization of atoms, electron capture and loss by high energy light and heavy ions, and fragmentation of molecules. Most of the studies investigated individual interactions using dilute gaseous targets but some studies investigated electron emission from clean surfaces.
