In this proposal we shall continue our efforts to generate cutting-edge science where fundamental and applied research will advance together in the field of optics. Our research program comprises three main thrusts: cold-matter physics, plasmonics and biophotonics, fields that linked by a common theme of light matter interaction. In parallel we shall advance fundamental understanding an...
The proposed research project seeks to reexamine an old research interest of the Brazilian PI; exact solutions of the Fermi accelerator model in the new context of non-adiabatic dynamics in molecular systems, thus shedding light on this important area. The previous, exact solutions will also themselves be improved, in two important ways. First, they will be analyzed using quantum trajec...
The Trojan Horse method is used to extract, from the experimental data, cross sections of reactions which are relevant to nucleosynthesis and nuclear astrophysics in general. Processes of the type a + A going to b + (x + A) are measured and used to extract the cross section of the subsystem x + A, which is more difficult to study directly. We plan to investigate the validity of the meth...
The research project of Professor Pierre Descouvemont involves the theoretical study of reactions induced by exotic weakly bound nuclei The method of coupled channels which is appropriate for such study, where the breakup process is important, will be used to calculate fusion, scattering and breakup cross sections of projectiles such as 7Li (a weakly bound nucleus) and 11Be (a one-neutr...

We plan to apply concepts of quantum chaos, namely, random matrix theory, in the description of electron conductance in nanosystems. In particular we propose study the autocorrelation function of quantum dots and graphene, through the density of maxima in the fluctuating conductance. (AU)
