Scanning Mobility Particle Sizer (SMPS)
The submicron aerosol size distribution is measured with a SMPS technique using a TSI Inc. 3772 Condensation Particle Counter and a custom-made Differential Mobility Analyzer assembled, tested and quality controlled according to EUSAAR recommendations (http://www.eusaar.net/). The interdependence between the mobility and size of the particle allows converting particle mobility distribution into size distribution, thus the size range of the SMPS extends from about 10 nm to 650 nm. Data are stored with a five-minute time resolution.
