Prof. K. N. Joshipura, Department of Physics, Sardar Patel University, Gujarat-India.:

We – myself and my students – are happy users of the Quantemol-N UK package code for the past two years. Earlier we were working on electron scattering at intermediate and high energies, but with this code we have extended our energy range to low energies as well. We have now made comprehensive calculations on electron collision processes from almost 0.1 to about 2000 eV, for a variety of well known and lesser known molecules. An important output of the Quantemol is in the form of BEB ionization cross sections, which we can now compare with cross sections calculated in our method.

    Quantemol-N provides much needed electron-molecular scattering data, particularly for molecules and molecular species that are difficult to isolate and study experimentally — such as the fluoro-carbon radicals. Such molecular data is in high demand from both academia and industry. Quantemol-N’s uniqueness lies in the fact that one does not have to be a specialist in the underlying scattering theory in order to utilise it.

    Prof. Dr Zoran Lj. Petrovic, Institute of Physics Belgrade, University of Belgrade, Serbian Academy of Arts and Sciences,

    We are users of a lot of electron-molecule scattering data since models of swarm transport coefficients and weakly ionized gases require complete representation of number, momentum and energy balances. Thus we were really happy to hear that there is a code that may cover some of the missing data and that it was packaged in such a way that we (non specialists) could use it. In our first months of use we were really impressed by the level of cooperation, support and understanding from the Quantemol-N staff and how the code has grown to a very user friendly system, based, to a considerable degree, on our initial difficulties in using the code. In very short time the code has become one of the most important tools in our work on evaluation of cross section sets for plasma modeling. Most importantly the code deals with some systems that cannot be studied experimentally easily, such as radicals and very reactive molecules.

    Good software for finding low energy electron molecule scattering resonances with excellent user support

    A conference delegate,

    … liked the simple screen approach to using the program. You were guided through the stages required to complete the calculation and everything was directly in front of you on the screen.

    … I can see the benefits for people looking at atomic and molecular collision physics and chemistry.

    A graduate user,

    … an easy way of calculating scattering.
