Aims of project:
1.) Preparation of the isotopically labeled metal oxides Ti18O2, Mg18O, Zn18O, Fe18O using the technique of laser ablation and wet preparation followed by calcination of solid sample in vacuum.
2.) Time-resolved Fourier-transform infrared emission spectroscopy of metals and metal oxides during the preparation process of metal nano-particles using the technique of laser ablation. The study of the plazma temperatures, excitation energies, the spectral analyse of the atomic emission.
3.) Photochemistry and the reactivity of the metal oxides with gaseous oxygen, formic acid, alcohols, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and carbonates studied using high resolution gas phase Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy.
