This project entitled “Dynamics of Weakly Bound Quantum Systems” (DWBQS)
describes a joint collaborative academic project and exchange scheme between
researchers from Norway, Sweden and France as beneficiaries and Argentina and
India as participants. The first focus of the program is on the theoretical challenges
regarding transfer and breakup mechanisms in excited atomic and molecular
systems. We will study breakup and imaging of atoms and molecules in laser fields
and Rydberg like systems in collisions between ions. The ability to solve the time
dependent Schrödinger equation in this regime results in new insights regarding
novel quantum processes involving entangled particles. For interpretation of present
and future experiments the need for parallel theory development cannot be
overestimated. A second focus will be to develop new understanding for the atomic structure problem in Super Heavy Elements (SHE) based on experience of many body physics in systems like large clusters and quantum dots. The DWBQS group with its new
collaborative constellation of theorists and experimentalists, atomic and nuclear
physicists, has a background which is well suited to secure the achievement of the
proposed goals.
