Paper Abstract

A bioaerosol sensor based on dual wavelength fluorescence excitation and multiple wavelength elastic scattering has been developed and characterized for classifying micron-sized particles on the fly. The UVLIF instrument successfully completed a field trial in which we detected and correctly identified over 90% of the simulant releases over the 2 week testing period.
