Spectroscopy and chemistry of metal clusters and cluster complexes

The group in Feb 2018, from left: Alan, David, Andre, Jenny

We apply spectroscopic tools for the investigation of strongly bound clusters in the gas phase to elucidate their geometric (and electronic) structures. Our main target is to obtain a fundamental understanding for the often unusual chemical properties of nano-scale materials.
