Resonances in molecules and molecular clusters

Gorfinkiel, Jimena D. (2020). Resonances in molecules and molecular clusters. Journal of Physics: Conference Series, 1412, article no. 052003.



Resonances play an important role in a number of atomic and molecular processes. Identifying and characterising resonances in electron scattering is essential as they can both enhance a number of processes (e.g. electronic and vibrational excitation) and are crucial in others like dissociative electron attachment and dissociative recombination. We discuss recent theoretical studies of shape and core-excited resonances, both in isolated molecules of biological relevance and in small molecular clusters. The latter are investigated to understand the effect of the environment, in particular hydration, in electron collisions in biological matter.
