Welcome to Laboratory of Aerosols, Clusters, and Environment based in the Department of Chemistry at Technical University of Munich. Our research interests lie in the field of environmental physical chemistry with emphasis on a detailed molecular-level understanding of complex environmental processes, e.g., nucleation of atmospheric aerosol particles. To do this, we employ clusters, well-defined finite size aggregates of atoms or molecules, to use them as nanoreactors for investigations of chemical reactions applying molecular and ion beam techniques, advanced mass spectrometry, and quantum chemical calculations. Please refer to our research section for more details.
