PhD projects

Christopher Mayhew leads the Molecular Physics group, which investigates the collisions and interactions of atomic and molecular ions and electrons with gas phase neutral molecular species. This has led to the development of novel instrumentation for studying plasma processes occurring in diverse environments such as the interstellar medium and planetary atmospheres and used in technological processing.

Dr Mayhew's research spans the themes of:

Ion-molecule chemistry
Electron attachment processes
Analytical chemistry
Medical applications
