Nigel Mason becomes Editor in Chief of EPJ D

We are pleased to announce that from January 2010 Nigel Mason, Professor of Physics at the Open University, UK, will be leading EPJ D, together with Kurt Becker and Claude Fabre. Nigel Mason brings to the journal an interdisciplinary approach to the AMOP field. His research covers a wide range of AMOP topics spanning physics and chemistry including astrochemistry, atmospheric science, surface science and spectroscopy. Since the 1990s he has studied the spectroscopy of over 100 molecules (mainly of atmospheric interest) using synchrotron radiation quantifying their photolysis rates and global warming potential. Research on the formation of molecules by irradiation of low temperature (20K) ices has led to a new research programme exploring processes on planetary systems and in the interstellar medium. Most recently his research has extended to study radiation damage processes within biomolecular systems including DNA.

I’d like to thank you for the excellent job you have done. It’s indeed a great pleasure to see that so much effort during more than one year pays off so nicely with the publication of these interesting proceedings, that I believe mark one of the most important meetings on relativistic jet physics of the last years.
It’s been indeed a pleasure to work with you and I’d definitely recommend your publishing services among my colleagues.
