An international group of scientists leverages high-performance computing to support current and future measurements of atomic photoionization cross-sections at various synchrotron radiation facilities, ion-atom collision experiments, together with plasma, fusion and astrophysical applications. In their work they solve the Schrödinger or Dirac equation using the R-matrix or R-matrix with pseudo-states approach from first principles. Cross-sections and rates for radiative charge transfer, radiative association, and photodissociation collision processes between atoms and ions of interest for several astrophysical applications are presented.
