In order to draw attention to the accurate Relativistic Adapted Gaussian Basis Sets (RAGBSs) that were recently developed in our group, we intend to apply these sets in the calculation of accurate potential energy curves for group II metals that are used in experimental studies of Bose-Einstein condensates. This work would be supervised by Professor Lucas Visscher who holds the chair in Quantum Chemistry and Multiscale Modeling at the VU University Amsterdam. As one of the main DIRAC code developers, the suite of programs required for studies of this type, and a well-known expert in the relativistic field, having the possibility to work with Professor Visscher would substantially improve the quality of the study proposed. Besides this main objective, other studies can be conducted to further test and document the quality of our RAGBSs. These involve, in particular, the accurate determination of the nuclear electric quadrupole moment of selected isotopes for which new experimental data has recently becomes available. Besides being of interest for this application, such precise studies also allow to answer fundamental questions concerning the influence of core and core-valence correlation for relativistic atoms. This is only possible with the high-quality and systematically extendable basis set approached offered by the RAGBSs. (AU)
