Unformatted text preview: Detect in CPC by growing particles to detectable sizes o Aerosol measurements: Condensation Particle counters (CPCs): Condenses isobutanol (or water) on particles to grow them to larger sizes Chemical composition: MS, IC, single particle analysis Aerosol sampling and analysis steps: 1. Aerosol sampling 2. Particle deposition 3. Extraction 4. Vaporization 5. Separation 6. Detection Methods in aerosol:-MS o Size: active, passive o Desorption: thermal desorption, laser desorption o Ionization: electron impact, chemical, laser ionization o Detection: TOF(highly sensitive, highest practical mass range), quadrupole (analyze 1 m/z at a time, detects OC nitrate, sulfate, and ammonium), Ion-trap...
