Aerosol Characterization

The goal is to conduct basic research geared towards the development of low-cost sensors for detection and analysis of the particulate matter. Current work includes:

  • Real-time particle sizing using cost-effective particle counter technology equipped with optimized codes developed in-house from scratch.
  • Analysis and Standards for ultrafine PM Chemical Composition (Organic Carbon, GC/MC, Fluorescence).
  • Excitation-Emission Matrix for Source Identification and Library Development.
  • Understanding PM chemistry and gauging health effects.
