Project: Instrument for measurement of aerosol light absorption

Acronym IMALA (Reference Number: 11386)
Duration 01/12/2017
Project Topic We will develop an instrument to measure aerosol light absorption for laboratory and field use. The instrument will serve as the reference for aerosol light absorption from which Black Carbon (soot; BC) mass concentration can be precisely inferred. The instrument will be based on first principles, can be easily calibrated and will, be usable as a standard for existing BC instruments. It will combine everything for successful commercialization: robustness, simplicity, precision, and accuracy.
