Instruments used for study of aerosols include:
Aerosol Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer (ATOFMS)
- This instrument determines the elemental and ionic composition of individual airborne particles in the size range 0.2-5 µm diameter. Its applications are mainly in the area of aerosol source apportionment and atmospheric process studies.
Chemical Ionisation-Atmospheric Pressure Inlet-Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer (CI-APi-ToF-MS)
- This instrument gives accurate mass data on molecules and clusters with a mass range of up to 1200 Th. Its main application is in the field of aerosol nucleation studies
