Article in J. Phys. Chem. C 122, 27640-7 (2018). 
DOI: 10.1021/acs.jpcc.8b10035


The Asmis Group focuses on the experimental characterization of the structure, reactivity and dynamics of clusters, nanoparticles and fluid surfaces using state-of-the-art mass spectrometric and laser spectroscopic methods  The central goal of our research is bridging the knowledge gap between isolated, nano-sized particles in the gas phase and the corresponding condensed phase systems. We are particularly interested in a molecular-level understanding of processes related to heterogeneous catalysis, aerosol formation, ion solvation and the formation, ripening and aging of oxide/water interfaces. 

In December 2014 Prof. Asmis and Dr. Reichelt launched the VCI-funded nano-ScienceLab. Its central goal is to familiarize chemistry students with nanoscience imaging techniques early on in their undergraduate studies.
