Applications of Atomic Physics to Astrophysical Plasmas

  • Carole Jordan
Part of the Physics of Atoms and Molecules book series (PAMO)

Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to show, through examples of recent work, the continuing interaction between atomic physics and astrophysics. It will not be an extensive review, since each type of application of atomic data discussed would itself deserve a separate chapter, but rather it will concentrate on some work within the past few years and on areas where further atomic data will be required.

Keywords

Atomic Physic Collision Cross Section Excitation Cross Section Atomic Data Astrophysical Plasma 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
