Research

Our research focuses on the following topics, placed in the field of laser chemistry:

A common feature of all our work is the utilization of various laser systems in order to initiate and/or analyze chemical processes. As a side product novel, extremely sensitive analytic techniques are developed. Frequently spectroscopic techniques (with one or multiple photon excitation) are employed, but gas chromatography and a special form of mass spectrometry (REMPI-TOF) are essential tools as well. REMPI-TOF (resonance enhanced multiple photon excitation - time of flight) even allows a discrimination of equal masses, e.g. CO and N2, by their respective spectroscopic properties.
