Research Institution
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 operation from aircraft platforms.
