Smog chamber studies of aerosol formation in atmospheric mixtures


During a joint experiment of the Department of Chemical Engineering (California Institute of Technology) and the Institute of Experimental Physics (University of Vienna), measurements have been performed to study the dynamics of particle inception in photochemical smog. The goal of this study was to obtain an understanding of the fundamental mechanisms in the formation of organic aerosols during atmospheric photochemical reactions. This paper presents results with new approaches to mobility analysis for aerosol-measurements that have been performed to trace the dynamics of ultrafine aerosol particles in smog chamber experiments.
