Atomic and Molecular Data Unit Activities
The Atomic and Molecular Data Unit
operates within the Nuclear Data Section
of the International
Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna, Austria.The primary objective of the
Atomic and Molecular Data Unit is to establish and maintain internationally
recommended numerical databases on atomic and molecular collision and
radiative processes, atomic and molecular structure characteristics,
particle-solid surface interaction processes and physico-chemical and
thermo-mechanical material properties for use in fusion energy research and
other plasma science and technology applications.
Our Unit achieves its objectives by
coordinating the activities of the International Atomic and Molecular Data Center Network (DCN) and Code Center Network (CCN),
initiation and conducting international Coordinated Research Projects (CRP),
organization of various types of Expert's Meetings,
publication of technical reports on meetings and research activities
and using other forms (research contracts, research agreements, consultancies)
for stimulation of the generation, collection and critical assessment of the required
atomic, molecular (A+M) and plasma-material interaction (PMI) data information.
The activity of Our Unit is supervised and biennially
reviewed by the Subcommittee on Atomic and Molecular Data for Fusion of the International
Fusion Research Council (IFRC A+M Subcommittee).
