The most famous scientists require collaborators with similar skills to help create new opportunities. For precision, one may require UD Professor Rudolf Eigenmann’s help to integrate computer science expertise and gain access to valuable information. Thus, looking at the interests of the scientists Marianna Safronova and Eigenmann along with the National Science Foundation have developed a Portal for High-Precision Atomic Data and Computation with the aim of providing high-value data related to atomic properties. The periodic table related to steroids is the primary focus as scientists are trying to gain more details associated with the materials.
The new portal is a boon for the projects associated with quantum simulation, quantum sensor development, fundamental physics-related tests, and others. The requirement of atomic data is high among astrophysicists, plasma physics applications, and also among scientists studying the presence of heavy metals like gold and uranium may in the universe. The scientists received support from Physics Professor Bindiya Arora on fundamental physics & modeling and Adam Marrs on computer mechanisms to put all the calculations together. As knowledge about the exact amount of atoms in materials is vital in science or engineering projects, highly precise data is being made available online to help researchers explore different applications in physics & engineering.
The calculations of Safronova have already helped in the development and fundamental research through tests of fundamental symmetries, optical atomic and nuclear clocks, dark matter-related research, and others to explore the earlier standard particle physics models. The portal is easy to access as well as search data and the data provided here is currently unavailable on any other database. The latest portal helps gain access to atomic and ion properties related to calculation such as hyperfine constants, lifetimes, matrix elements, polarizabilities, transition rates, and others. The inclusion of new data is possible through the first version of the portal providing complex calculations on 12 elements. The researchers are planning on adding 30 more elements and also working toward making it accessible & free for all the users.
