Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research (IfT)

The Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research (IfT) was founded in 1992 for the investigation of physical and chemical processes in the polluted troposphere. The IfT consists of three departments, i.e. Atmospheric Physics, Atmospheric Chemistry (Head: Prof. H. Herrmann - PI of the project) and Atmospheric Modelling. Over the years, a well-defined and globally unique research profile of IfT emerged, with a focus on aerosol particles, i.e. small airborne particles and cloud droplets. The chemistry department is covering atmospheric chemistry in its full width. The department is specialised in understanding the tropospheric multiphase system by conducting laboratory experiments, developing chemical mechanism schemes and performing field measurements. The group maintains a wide variety of particle sampling techniques and holds a large sub-group for analytical chemistry mainly based on hyphenated analytical techniques to analyze samples from both field- and laboratory studies.
