Short Curriculum Vitae

Research interests:

My interests are in theoretical atomic, molecular, and optical physics applied to systems of experimental interest. One focus is numerical methods for the full quantum dynamics of atomic and molecular systems.  Another is to develop approximate or analytic models for analysis or interpretation.  Work in the 1970’s involved atmospheric and astrophysical problems. Work in the 1980s, centered on high-energy lasers and collisions in light fields. Since the development of laser cooling at NIST in the mid 1980s, work has focused on quantum phenomena associated with cold atoms, molecules and ions.   These includes the quantum dynamics of cold collisions, namely, their precise characterization, their control by magnetic, electric, or electro-magnetic fields, their role in quantum gases and in lattice structures with tight confinement, and the production and properties of ultra-cold molecules and their chemical dynamics.  I have co-authored 6 review articles on these topics.  This work continues since retirement from NIST in 2013, having published 35 papers during 2014-2021 since retiring. Two new papers have been submitted for publication in 2022.
