EPJD topical issues on atomic cluster collisions and many particle spectroscopy

May 15, 2019

The topical issues "Atomic Cluster Collisions" and "Many Particle Spectroscopy of Atoms, Molecules, Clusters and Surfaces" have been published in the European Physical Journal D.

The issue on Atomic Cluster Collisions, edited by Alexey Verkhovtsev, Germán Rojas-Lorenzo, Jesús Rubayo Soneira and Andrey V. Solov’yov, presents a state-of-the-art description of current research activities in the field of atomic cluster collisions and atomic cluster science. The contributions to this Issue report on experimental, theoretical and computational studies devoted to both the fundamentals of collision mechanisms and their applied aspects linked to nano- and biotechnology, materials science and medicine. The papers published in this Topical Issue cover such areas as spectroscopy, photodissociation, reaction dynamics of neutral and charged cluster systems, electron- and ion-induced fragmentation, radiation chemistry, radiation biology, and many more. Most of the articles were published by the participants of the ISACC 2017 conference (Varadero, Cuba, October 2-6, 2017) presenting their original results.

The Topical Issue on Many Particle Spectroscopy of Atoms, Molecules, Clusters and Surfaces, edited by Károly Tőkési, Béla Paripás, Gábor Pszota and Andrey V. Solov’yov collected articles by the participants of the International conference "Many Particle Spectroscopy of Atoms, Molecules, Clusters and Surfaces" (MPS-2018) which took place in Budapest, Hungary during August 21-24, 2018. The conference was focused on the actual experimental and theoretical problems of the interaction of radiation of different nature (electrons, photons, atoms, heavy charged particles) with various targets – atoms, molecules, clusters, surfaces and nanostructures. The contributions to this topical issue present original research results from some of the participants on both experimental and theoretical studies involving many particle spectroscopy of atoms, molecules, clusters and surfaces.
