Photochemistry of organic constituents of atmospheric aerosol droplets

Speaker: Professor Andrew Orr-Ewing, University of Bristol


The research of Professor Orr-Ewing's group is concerned with the application of laser-based techniques in chemistry and materials science. They study the mechanisms of chemical and photochemical reactions, the spectroscopy and structure of reactive intermediates, atmospheric chemistry, analytical applications of laser spectroscopy, optical properties of aerosol particles, and laser ablation for thin-film deposition. Their work includes processes that occur in the gas phase, in liquids and at the surfaces of materials.

Andrew Orr-Ewing is a Professor of Chemistry at the University of Bristol, where he leads the Laser Chemistry, Spectroscopy & Dynamics Group. He is also a supervisor in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Chemical Synthesis and the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Aerosol and Droplet Science.
