One of the largest scientific mysteries in the atmosphere is how new nanoparticles form and then grow from a few nanometer in diameter into sizes of relevance for human health, cloud formation and climate. But the chemistry of nanoparticles is inherently difficult to study due to their minuscule size and mass. In this project, scientists from Aarhus University together with international colleagues will apply novel, innovative technology for nanoparticle sampling and analysis to improve understanding of nanoparticle formation and processes relevant for both natural and polluted environments. The research addresses global challenges such as climate change and air pollution, affecting millions of people every day.
