Research interests

By using state-of-the-art ab initio methods, we determine molecular properties of relevant species for Astrochemistry (as are short carbon and silicon carbon chains, complex organic molecules, and diatomic and triatomic species). We study three types of problems:

  1. Characterization of the structure of new low stability species or uncharacterized species (non-rigid or semi-rigid), transition frequencies and excitation coefficients…, predicting from the Potential Energy Surfaces of the different electronic states, conical intersections, and rovibronic, Renner-Teller, Spin-Orbit, … effects.
  2. Cross sections and rates determination for non reactive inelastic collisional processes. We focus our attention on collisions of the most abundant astrophysical species with H2 and He.
  3. Kinetic and thermodynamic studies of formation processes. Special attention is given to the iomerization and anion formation processes.
