Research Biography

Professor Michael Brunger has experimental research interests in positron and electron scattering from a range of molecular species and radicals that are of medical, technological and atmospheric importance. With colleague Dr Laurence Campbell, he has also developed a modelling faculty that enables the role of electron-driven processes in our atmosphere and that of other planets to be simulated.

Research Interests

Professor Brunger has research interests that span atomic and molecular physics, chemical physics and physical chemistry. They include:
Electron scattering from atoms, molecules and radicals of fundamental and applied relevance.
Positron scattering from atoms and molecules of fundamental and applied relevance.
Electron Momentum Spectroscopy or (e,2e) spectroscopy on atoms, molecules and clusters.
Modelling the role of electron-driven processes in our atmosphere, other planetary atmospheres (e.g. Venus, Mars and Titan) and comets.
