Regents Professor Steven T. Manson is a theoretical physicist who has been working on problems in atomic and molecular science for more than half a century. After receiving the Ph.D. degree in 1966, he spend two years as a postoc at the national Bureau of Standards (now NIST) working with Ugo Fano, coming to Georgia State as an Assistant Professor in 1968. Over the years, his primary research focus has been photoabsorption of ionizing radiation by atomic systems. This research has resulted in about 350 papers in refereed journals and more than 50 conference presentations. Funding for these theoretical investigations has come primarily from the National Science Foundation, the US Army Research Office, NASA, NATO, and the US Department of Energy (present funding). In addition, a hallmark of the research program has been collaboration with experimentalists and theorists in the US and many countries, including France, Ireland, U. K., Germany, Italy Serbia, Israel, Uzbekistan, India, Turkey, Qatar Brazil and Australia.
