Lund-Malmö Centre of Atomic Systems (LUMCAS) is an initiative to gather research on atomic structure and processes and its applications to terrestial and astrophysical plasmas, and industrial applications.
The approach is both theoretical and experimental. Current research fields are atomic structure and parameters such as transition rates, line profiles, lifetimes, but also radiation processes in astrophysical objects and other plasmas.
Our research is driven by problems in fusion and astronomical systems as well as energy research. The wide span in the group in connectin with the national and international network allow us to use optimal methods for a variety of problems and the strength to develop and design new tools.
Lund-Malmö Centre for Atomic Structure is standing on the shoulders of Rydberg and has core members from Lund University and Malmö University.
