Highlights of recent research

Electron Impact Research (at McMaster)

ISEELS - Inner Shell Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy - dipole-regime core excitation spectra of gas phase molecules. Recent themes: models for polymer and biological systems: amino acids & peptides; sugars & peptidoglycans; carbonyl compounds, peroxides, bi-ring systems

McVAHRES - McMaster Variable Angle High Resolution Electron Spectrometer - non-dipole and spin-forbidden core excitation transitions in gas molecules. Quantitative generalized oscillator strengths (GOS). Quasi-elastic scattering - a fascinating exploration of Rutherford scattering by individual atoms in molecules that has intriguing details that may give insights into quantum superposition and decoherence - phenomena at the heart of quantum computing.
