Biographies

Jim Mitroy was considered an outstanding theoretical atomic, molecular and optical physicist. In the 1990s he directed his attention to antimatter-matter interactions, where he made his most note-worthy contributions. Outcomes of this research included a series of publications on computational solutions to the collisions of positron atoms and his proof of the existence of positron atoms. More recently he worked on photon-atom and atom-atom interactions. He was leader of collaborations that resulted in review papers on atomic polarisabilities and on explicitly-correlated Gaussian basis functions. As Lecturer at the University College of the Northern Territory, Mitroy was instrumental in establishing the undergraduate physics program. He represented the University on the Australian Council of Deans and Directors of Graduate Studies and the Australian Institute for Nuclear Science and Engineering. At the time of his death he was Professor of Physics.
