CCPQ is a collaborative computational project with the objectives of developing theoretical techniques and computer programs to describe collisions between projectiles such as electrons, positrons or photons and atomic or molecular targets. Over the years these objectives have expanded to include atoms and molecules in strong (long-pulse and attosecond) laser fields, low-energy interactions of antihydrogen with small atoms and molecules, cold atoms, Bose-Einstein condensates and optical lattices. The project grew out of the old CCP2 which focused on correlated ab initio continuum methods for leptonic collisions and multiphoton interactions, and in 2011 incorporated CCP6 that focused on molecule-molecule scattering and nuclear quantum dynamics. It involves research scientists from UK universities and government laboratories as well as scientists from Germany, Italy, Japan and US. CCPQ supports network activities, code curation with CCPForge and related atomic and molecular research.
The project is directed by a Steering Panel chaired by Professor Graham Worth, University College London, with vice-chairs Dr Stephen Clark, University of Bath, and Professor Hugo van der Hart, Queen's University Belfast. The Steering Panel with additional UK members and international members and advisers make up the network Working Group. If you work in the CCPQ areas of interest and would like to be involved in the Working Group, please contact Prof. Worth.
