Welcome to the new homepage of nanoDynamite!

We appreciate your comments and feedback regarding our web-appearance.

We congratulate nanoDynamite member Kay Scholze for the successful completion of his master studies. In his master thesis entitled "Growth rate analysis of atmospheric global systems reproduced at the CLOUD 12 experiment" he investigated nanoparticle growth mechanisms from combined measurements of the DMA train and a nano-SMPS.

New publication by D. Stolzenburg et al. in PNAS (DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1807604115) raises attention in the media.

We welcome two new members to the nanodynamite-Team: Gerald Köberl, BSc who writes his master thesis within the NanoDynamite project and Gonzalez Loic, MS starts his PhD-position with may 01, 2018.

New article available about rainbows on our Outreach & Media-Site.

We welcome a new member to the nanodynamite-Team: Miguel Vazquez Pufleau, MSc PhD starts his Post-Doc-position with august 16, 2017.

New videos available about cloud formation on our Outreach & Media-Site.

The CLOUD-workshop takes place in Vienna from 2017-05-29 until 2017-06-02.

The nanodynamite-Team congratulates Andrea Ojdanic to the excellent graduate degree of her master thesis and we thank her for her cooperative participation in the nanodynamite-Team.

We welcome two new members to the nanodynamite-Team: Sophia Brilke starts her PhD-position with June 01, 2016. At the same time Bernhard Baumgartner has started working on his master thesis.

We welcome a new member to the nanodynamite-Team: Angelika Wiesinger!

We welcome two new members to the nanodynamite-Team: Andrea Ojdanic and Christian Tauber!
