Research at the Bristol Aerosol Research Centre is focussed on improving our understanding of the physical and chemical properties of aerosols at a single particle level. Particles are manipulated with light or charge and characterised by spectroscopy.
Experiments are studying processes that are relevant to aerosols in the atmosphere, in the delivery of drugs to the lungs and in spray drying.
BARC is based in recently refurbished laboratory and office space in the School of Chemistry at the University of Bristol.
