Bourier is working on the investigation of nucleation and growth of
nanoparticles. A combined approach of experiments and simulations should
elucidate the mechanism of particle formation. Separation of particles of
different sizes as well as data obtained from ex-situ and especially in-situ
in a free-liquid-jet give information about the speed of different
processes in the solution. Currently utilized methods involve SEC, TEM,
UV-vis-spectroscopy and others.
