Activités de recherche

The AMA research activities are focused on the stability and the fragmentation dynamics of molecules and clusters bombarded by keV ions. These studies are achieved at large-scale facilities (essentially ARIBE at GANIL) using home-made high quality instrumentation. The major topics of the AMA team are :
- Fundamental processes in ion collisions,
- Ion interaction with complex molecules and clusters,
- Recent Instrumental developments.
- Modelisation

Fundamental processes in ion collisions

From the time of its creation, the AMA team investigates fundamental processes in ion collisions. In 2006, evidence for Young-type electron interference effects was given by the AMA team. During (...)

Ion interaction with complex molecules and clusters

PAH and their clusters
Complex molecular systems are composed of several atoms, e.g., this includes C60 fullerene, molecules of biological interest such as nucleobases and amino acids, (...)
