EPJ D Topical Issue: Physics of Ionized Gases and Spectroscopy of Isolated Complex Systems: Fundamentals and Applications (2022)

Guest Editors: Bratislav Obradović, Jovan Cvetić, Dragana Ilić, Vladimir Srećković and Sylwia Ptasinska

Submissions are invited for a forthcoming Topical Issue of EPJD entitled Physics of Ionized Gases and Spectroscopy of Isolated Complex Systems: Fundamentals and Applications.

The aim of this topical issue is to present new theoretical and experimental results connected with the physics of ionized gasses, including numerous fundamental and applicative processes such as: electron and photon interactions with atoms and complex molecular systems, heavy particle collisions, swarms and transport phenomena, atomic collisions in solids, sputtering and deposition, laser and plasma interaction with surfaces, plasma spectroscopy and other diagnostic methods, gas discharges, plasma applications and devices, fusion plasmas, astrophysical plasmas and collective phenomena.

All these processes are important for understanding plasma, which is a commonly present and widely studied state, and it can be found at practically all scales: from the astrophysical (e.g., in our Sun, solar wind, interplanetary medium, in other stars and interstellar medium, in all galaxies including our Milky Way, as well as in intergalactic space) to the different types of nanosystems and cluster systems on the atomistic and elementary particle level (photonic, electronic and atomic collisions, quark-gluon plasma). Moreover, these processes are important for understanding the interaction of ionizing radiation (e.g. VUV/X-rays) with ubiquitous complex systems such as solvated biomolecules.

Authors are invited to submit their work to the European Physical Journal D, indicating their wish to appear in the Topical Issue “Physics of Ionized Gases and Spectroscopy of Isolated Complex Systems: Fundamentals and Applications” and also indicating which of the Guest Editors they wish to handle their contribution.

The issue is open to everyone working in the field. Reciprocally, papers not relating to the title of the Topical Issue and thus outside the scope of EPJ D will not be considered for publication.

Deadline for submission: October 31st, 2022

The full manuscripts should be submitted before the deadline directly to the EPJ D Editorial Office at https://www.editorialmanager.com/epjd/. Submissions should be clearly identified as intended for on “Physics of Ionized Gases and Spectroscopy of Isolated Complex Systems: Fundamentals and Applications”. Papers will be published continuously and will appear as soon as accepted on the journal website. The electronic version of the Topical Issue will contain all accepted papers in the order of publication. All submitted papers will be refereed according to the usual high standards of the journal.
