dynamics, collision physics, atomic and molecular spectroscopy,
My research interests are in the field of
experimental atomic and molecular physics. They involve the use
of photon and electron impact to study a range of processes that are
dominated by electron-electron correlations. I am particularly
interested in near-threshold photoionisation mechanisms including
double ionisation, since this is an ideal way to study the fundamental
three-body Coulomb problem; i.e. a positive ion core and two ejected
low energy photoelectrons. For this work we use synchrotron
radiation, and we have developed electron spectrometers that are able
to measure the two ejected photoelectrons, in coincidence, with high
resolution and detection efficiency.
