Interface to Los Alamos Atomic Physics Codes is your gateway to the set of atomic physics codes developed at the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
The well known Hartree-Fock method of R.D. Cowan, developed at Group home page of the Los Alamos National Laboratory, is used for the atomic structure calculations. Electron impact excitation cross sections are calculated using either the distorted wave approximation (DWA) or the first order many body theory (FOMBT). Electron impact ionization cross sections can be calculated using the scaled hydrogenic method developed by Sampson and co-workers, the binary encounter method or the distorted wave method. Photoionization cross sections and, where appropriate, autoionizations are also calculated.
