1. Research Interests
In my research work, I introduced a new approach in the perturbation theory (canonical functions) for the solution of the Schrödinger equation for the calculation of the vibrational energy levels for the ground and excited electronic states, the rotational and the centrifugal constants, the Franck-Condon factor and the matrix elements of molecules in the Raman and infrared transitions.
Researches on ultracold molecules and Bose-Einstein condensate materials are of a current and great challenge in the spectroscopic studies because of their importance in the cooling and trapping of atoms and molecules, their role in high precision spectroscopy and Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC). They may also allow for the study of collective quantum effects in molecular systems. After the success in laser cooling in 1997 I started in collaboration with the Laboratory of Ionic and Molecular Spectroscopy in Claude Bernard University Lyon I France (LASIM) a project of theoretical studies on a series of diatomic molecules and molecular ions for the determination, for the ground and excited states, the spectroscopic constants, rovibrational studies, the potential energy curves, the static and transition dipole moment, Franck-Condon factor, the radiation lifetime and the oscillator strength of the studied molecules.
