Research Areas

Low energy electron interactions in gas phase, Electron scattering, Dissociative electron attachment, Electron Ionization, Mass Spectrometry


The main research interest in focused on low energy electron interactions with isolated gas phase targets. Dissociative electron attachment and electron ionisation processes are deeply explored in a large variety of target molecules, from biologically relevance to nanotechnology applications. These studies have been performed over the last years in close collaboration with University of Innsbruck, Austria, University of Siedlce, Poland and University of Iceland.
