Development of computational methods and their applications to vibrational excitation, dissociative attachment and associative detachment of molecules by an electron impact in processes that of interest to chemical lithography, i.e., in printing chemical and physical properties on surfaces, fabrication of molecular circuits and molecular machines. The ability to understand, manipulate and control chemical reactions at the molecular level is one of the great challenges of modern research. In electron beam experiments it has been established that such "single molecule engineering" can be achieved by a low-energy electron impact. The aim of this project is to contribute to this development by a deeper understanding of electron-molecule collisions by theoretical methods.
