Chair: Petr Slavicek
Co-chair: Jean-Hughes Fillion

The WG3 focuses on modelling and measuring the rate constants for photo-dissociation and photoionization by UV and X-ray photons and cosmic radiation. The group will also study light induced processes on the surface of dust grains. The focus will be both theoretical and experimental. The WG will favor molecules that can be detected in space, especially in comets, and will emphasize the understanding of the reaction mechanisms.
