Cluster Catalysis and Advanced Spectroscopy

We explore the physical and chemical properties of the smallest matter particles in the non-scalable size regime. In this regime, the properties of the clusters are determined by the exact number of atoms. Our research findings create a better understanding of nanocatalysis, asymmetric catalysis and photocatalysis. We also have a strong focus in the development of new experimental tools for characterizing sub-nanoscale materials and developing new optic materials based on size-selected clusters.
