Atomic and Molecular physics play a central role in many other fields such as analytical techniques, biophysics, and chemical & condensed matter physics. Accurate atomic and molecular data is required for understanding Earth, Sun, other's Astrophysical objects (like Stars, Nebulae, Novae, Supernovae) atmospheres and high temperature plasma coming from fusion type of reaction in (ITER) future Tokomak-machines. The main processes of direct interests are data for collisional processes involving electron, proton & photon resulting excitation, ionization, dissociation and recombination. In addition, collision processes is central to the understanding of phenomena such as global warming, and air and water pollution. Not only this branch impacts numerous branches of engineering, from information technology and nanotechnology to bioengineering.
