About the Institution
Quantemol Ltd offers a unique software using the highly sophisticated UK molecular R-matrix code to model electron polyatomic molecule interactions. The software has been further developed to provide simulations with plasmas and industrial plasma tools.

Additionally, the professional services team at Quantemol develops bespoke codes for modelling particular industrial requirements and the company provides expertise in building high-accuracy simulations for specialist situations.

The company, founded in 2004, is based at University College London and developed the world’s first virtual quantum laboratory.

My research activity covers a range of topics in the physics of molecules dealing with both the underlying theory and applications of calculations of molecular spectra and collisions. Since 1982 I have worked on developing theoretical treatments on all aspects of low-energy electron-molecule collisions using the R-matrix method. This project is a UK collaboration which I have led for the last decade. We are currently adapting the codes to do time-dependent calculations of photoionisation in strong fields for arbitrary molecular targets. I was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS) in 2009.

In 2004 I combined with Dr Dan Brown to form Quantemol Ltd, which has developed an expert system for running the R-matrix programs. This product, Quantemol-N which was launched in 2005, allows the non-specialist users to perform electron-molecule collision calculations without the need for heavy training, in the fashion that is now standard for quantum chemistry programs. The company has since developed expert systems Quantemol-P (launched 2007) and Quantemol-D(2009) to model plasma processes.
