James Colgan, Los Alamos National Lab (LANL), visited the department Friday to collaborate with Feagin, Khakoo, and Childers of our Atomic, Molecular, and Optical (AMO) group.


For the colloquium, James described the evolution over the past 20 years of computational physics with large-array supercomputing at our national labs and its impact on AMO science.

James is renowned for the many collaborations he's involved in around the globe, providing critical modeling support for a remarkable variety of projects.

James specializes in state of the art numerical solution of the few-body Coulomb problem, especially processes involving ionization and detection of electron pairs.
