In the Signorell research group, we use light for the detection, manipulation, and characterization of ultrafine aerosol particles and nanoparticles in order to learn more about their physical-chemical properties.
What interests us when we study ultrafine aerosol particles and nanoparticles?
- Structural properties (internal structure, surface properties)
- Reactive processes (gas-particle reactions, photochemical reactions) and phase transitions (freezing, glass formation)
- Evaporation, condensation, coagulation, and new particle formation
- Confinement effects in the light-particle interaction
- Optical trapping and manipulation of single aerosol particles
- Development of new methods for the detection of ultrafine aerosols
Prof. Signorell teaches several physical chemistry courses of the chemistry undergraduate and master curriculum. To see what is currently being taught by Prof. Signorell, please check the Education page.
