I am a quantum mechanic. I solve the equations of quantum mechanics to try and address important scientific and technological problems such as How much light does one molecule of carbon dioxide absorb? What are the signatures of molecules in the atmospheres of planets orbiting other stars (exoplanets)? I run a major project on this called ExoMol (google it). What are the physical processes that occur in the plasmas used for such processes as making silicon chips?
