Cosmic Ray interactions with ice mantles

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

The chemistry program Saptarsy has recently been improved to provide a realistic description of grain mantles.  One important physical aspect that is missing is a realistic interaction of cosmic rays with the mantle.  In this thesis, the idea is to include these mechanisms, based on laboratory experiments from the literature.
