Prof. Dr. Ulrich Heiz



Research Areas

Prof. Heiz explores 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. His research findings create a better understanding of nanocatalysis, asymmetric catalysis and photocatalysis. He also works on characterizing and developing new optic materials based on size-selected clusters.
