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.
