Paper Abstract

The Cascade Impactor on the IECM is an aerosol sampling instrument using three cascade impaction-type nozzles of progressively smaller diameter, with coated quartz crystal oscillators as collection plates. In this manner, particle size discrimination into three ranges (5 μm and larger, 1 to 5 μm, and 0.3 to 1 μm) is accomplished.
