(f) Research interests:

My area of interest has been theoretical atomic, molecular, and optical physics applied to systems of real experimental interest. One focus is to use numerical methods to calculate 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 issues relating to high-energy lasers and collisions in light fields. Since the development of laser cooling at NIST in the mid-1980s, I have concentrated on quantum phenomena associated with cold atoms, molecules, and ions.   This includes the quantum dynamics of cold collisions of two or three atoms, namely, their precise characterization, their control by magnetic, electric, or electromagnetic 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 28 papers during 2014-2020 since retiring with 1 additional paper under review at the start of 2021.
