RESEARCH

Research highlights:

Multi-electron processes in atomic and molecular collisions.
– I was involved (during my PhD thesis) in the theoretical study of the double ionization of the helium atom and of the hydrogen molecule by fast charged particle collisions. These studies implies to go beyond the independent – electron approximation in the many – body problem, and to take into consideration the effect of the correlations between different charged particles in order to explain the dependence of the cross section for the two – electron processes, in high velocity atomic and molecular collisions with charged particles, with the sign of the projectile charge.

Phase Transitions and Renormalization Group.
– One of the interest subjects is the study of the d – dimensional Bose gas at finite temperature using the Renormalization Group method, and in particular the calculation of the critical tempera- ture, the coherence length and the specific heat for a two dimen- sional Bose gas. – Another subject of interest is the study of an interacting Fermi systems near the ferromagnetic phase transition using the Renor- malization Group method. Near the quantum phase transition point these system usually present a non – Fermi behavior.

Low temperature physics of glasses.
– Now I am involved in the study of the low temperature behavior of the amorphous glasses such as the low-frequency dielectric suscep- tibility in external magnetic field, or the amplitude of spontaneouspolarization echoes generated in this materials. It has been re- ported a strong magnetic field dependence of the low-temperature dielectric properties of these systems. We strongly believe that the nuclear quadrupole is responsible for this anomalous behavior of some insulating glasses in strong external magnetic field.
