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.

Tim traps first nanoparticle (28.05.2018)

After more than three years of planning and building, Tim traps his first nanoparticle.
The particle, an agglomerate of 25 nm polystyrene nanoparticles, was trapped at 30 kHz drive frequency and an amplitude of Vp = 200 V in a newly designed split ring electrode trap (SRET).
The next step will be the determination of mass and charge and a characterization of the effection ion trap potential.
Further experiments at trap temperatures of 10 - 300 K are planned.
