Paper Abstract

Laser particle spectrometry is one of the leading measurement technologies engaged in environmental monitoring, measuring the aerosol contamination of the air inside and outside of urban regions. It has a number of benefits against other methods - e.g. the possibility of real time, in situ measurement with high time resolution. These features make the light scattering based measurement methods superior to others in a mobile environmental laboratory. Our previously developed instruments are based on laser light scattering collected from different angular regions (90°, forward and backward directions) and a special illumination system increase the sensitivity and the resolution of the sizing. A collection of the developed optical instruments and other devices based on different methods were installed into a mobile environmental laboratory for monitoring atmospheric aerosols, which allows the comparison of the results obtained from different measurement methods. This laboratory has been used in 3 measurement campaigns where measurements were performed in 6 different locations.
