705. Heraeus Seminar “Frontiers in Size‐Selected Cluster Research: Bridging the Gap” (9/29-10/3/2019)

From September 29 to October 3, 2019, the 705th Heraeus Seminar "Frontiers in Size-Selected Cluster Research: Bridging the Gap" took place at the Physics Center Bad Honnef with 84 participants from more than ten countries. The symposium, organized by us and supported generously by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Foundation financially and organisationally, was a complete success.

In addition to beautiful lectures by Jonas and Arghya, there were great poster contributions from Yake, Sonja, Max, Sreekanta and Arghya.

Vibrational Spectroscopy of the Hexahydrated Sulfate Dianion Revisited: Role of Isomers and Anharmonicities
H. Knorke,  H. Li,  Z. Liu,  K.R. Asmis
Article in Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys. 21, 11651-9 (2019). Selected as 2019 HOT PCCP article.
DOI: 10.1039/C9CP01802F 


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.
