Paul Kleiber, Ph.D.

Professor Emeritus
Research Interests: 

Atmospheric physics; chemical physics.

  • Laboratory studies of the optical and chemical properties of mineral dust and carbonaceous dust aerosols
  • Theoretical modeling for light scattering and absorption by aerosols
  • Laboratory studies of gas phase and heterogeneous chemical processes and reaction dynamics
  • Laser spectroscopy
  • Two labs: Major instruments include tunable Nd:YAG-pumped OPOs, a time-of-flight mass spectrometer, aerosol generation & characterization instrumentation, FTIR and UV-vis spectrometers, an environmental simulation chamber
  • Students use varied experimental techniques for aerosol characterization and chemical processing, laser scattering studies, mass-spectrometry, and spectroscopy, and also carry out theoretical modeling studies
Research areas
  • Atmospheric and Environmental Physics
  • Optics and Photonics
