Welcome to the Laser Atom Research Group at Queen’s

We are a research group within the Centre for Theoretical Atomic Molecular and Optical Physics at Queen’s University Belfast. Our research focuses on the application of time-dependent R-matrix theory to ultrafast (attosecond-scale) processes in atoms and ions.
