Atomic and molecular (A&M) data are of critical importance across a wide range of applications such as astrophysics, atmospheric physics, fusion, environmental sciences, combustion chemistry, and in industrial applications from plasmas to lighting. Currently these vital and fundamental A&M data resources are highly fragmented and only available through a variety of highly specialized interfaces, thus limiting the full exploitation of their scientific worth.
The Virtual Atomic and Molecular Data Centre (VAMDC) is a major new European initiative now building a unified, secure, documented, flexible and interoperable e-science environment-based interface to existing A&M data.
The focus demo aims at demonstrating the tools developed within the VAMDC consortium ( for accessing atomic and molecular databases. We will demonstrate the use of a portal and other software tools that can search for species, lineslists, collisions across multiple heteregeneous databases. For software developers we will provide the relevant information for integration of our standards and softwares within their own applications.
