The first Quantemol workshop: “Linking simulation and experiment”

The first Quantemol workshop: “Linking simulation and experiment” will take place on 10th June 2011 at University College London.

We would like to invite you to attend a workshop to hear Quantemol software users present their research in plasma physics and share their experiences performing plasma modelling and calculations.

The workshop is aimed at giving insights in the field of modelling plasmas. Specifically, the workshop intends to broaden the knowledge of scientific areas involved, and seek advice on modelling plasmas, by enabling multi-disciplinary viewpoints and exchange of ideas. A secondary goal of the workshop will be to get a clearer idea of which specific aspects of the Quantemol software can be useful for experimental or modelling R&D

Workshop lectures are open to anyone interested. Registration is free of charge.

The list of invited speakers includes:

Prof. Nick Braithwaite (Professor of Engineering and head of the department of Physics and Astronomy at the Open University. Research is in plasma physics, studies of plasmas formed from electrical discharges in gasses as part of technological applications relating to the manufacture of semi-conductors)

Prof. Nigel Mason (Professor of Molecular Physics and Director of Research in Department of Physics and Astronomy at the Open University, leads a research group exploring many different facets of molecular physics including: astrochemistry; atmospheric physics; plasma chemistry and radiation chemistry)

Prof. Zoran Petrovic (Director of Gaseous Electronics Laboratory at the Institute of the physics in Zemun, Belgrade. His research into the physics of ionized gases motivated by possible non-equilibrium plasma applications; he also studies in charged particle swarms, low pressure breakdown and discharges and kinetics and applications of collisional plasmas)

Prof. Jonathan Tennyson (Professor of Physics, Fellow of The Royal Society, Head of Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University College London. Maintains and develops R-matrix codes for modelling the low energy scattering of electrons and positrons by molecular targets)

The preliminary schedule is below and a more detailed program will be available at our web-site soon.

10:00 – 11:00 Registration, coffee and brunch
11:00 – 13:00 Session 1: Modelling Plasma & Simulations presentations
13:00 – 14:00 Buffet lunch
14:00 – 16:50 Session 2: Simulation discovery session, two parallel hands on sessions (Quantemol-N and Quantemol-D)
16:00 – 18:00 Drinks reception.

Please e-mail anna(at) if you are interested in attending the workshop.
Be aware that places are limited and will be given on a first come, first served basis.
We are looking forward to hearing from you.
