STTR Phase I: Miniaturization of the Continuous-Flow Streamwise Thermal-Gradient Cloud Condensation Nuclei (CCN) Counter

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: UCSD Scripps Inst

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07
PI: Dr. Gregory L. Kok

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I research proposal addresses one of the largest uncertainties in understanding climate change. Measurements of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) aerosols are fundamental for providing the link between atmospheric aerosol properties and cloud microphysics. The continuous-flow streamwise thermal ...

An aircraft instrument for measurement of absorption at multiple wavelengths in the atmosphere.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-139
Budget: 02/23/05 - 02/27/08
PI: Dr. Gregory L. Kok

A three wavelength instrument will be developed that measures aerosol light scatter and absorption simultaneously. Lasers with frequencies of 405, 532 and 870 nm will be used as the light sources. Light absorption by the aerosols will be measured by the photoacoustic technique. The instrument will be designed for fast response, and operati...
