Atomic and molecular (A+M) data are critical for a range of applications such as astrophysics, atmospheric physics, fusion, environmental sciences, combustion chemistry, health and clinical science including radiotherapy. They underpin industries ranging from technological plasmas to lighting. The Virtual Atomic and Molecular Data Centre (VAMDC) is a major new European initiative that has built a unified, secure, documented, flexible and interoperable e-science environment-based interface to 24 existing A+M databases.
