Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is dedicated to the memory of Oleg Zatsarinny and his many contributions to the science of atomic structure, collisions, and other continuum processes occurring in atomic molecular, and optical (AMO) physics.  The articles highlight the contributions Oleg has made to our understanding of AMO physics and the impact the methods he developed already have had and certainly will continue to have on future developments, both in fundamental science and the many applications of AMO physics.  The latter include the modelling of energy transport in plasmas and astrophysical objects, as well as light-matter interactions, including short-pulse, intense laser physics.  Also included is a collection of short testimonies from friends and colleagues that summarize the impact Oleg has had on their life.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Atoms is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this special issue is free of charge. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
