Handix Scientific is a research and development company focusing on atmospheric aerosol measurements.
7/13/18 We've been working with Shantanu Jathar's group at Colorado State University on a portable sampling system focused on the POPS. It's currently deployed in Fort Collins, Colorado, and is being powered by solar panels that also charge a set of batteries that provide power to the system overnight. Data from the POPS are also pushing to a cloud-based data repository for easy user access. We hope to deploy a small network of these sampling stations later this summer. Thanks to summer students Shiva Tarun and Liam Lewane for driving this effort!
5/14/18 Dr. Tim Gordon has delivered four POPS systems to Colorado State University, where they will be used in the "Home Observations of Microbial and Environmental Chemistry (HOMEChem)" project next month.
5/3/18 Handix Scientific's Gavin McMeeking recently returned from a trip to Beijing, China, together with Colorado State University's Dr. Ezra Levin. They assisted a group in setting up a continuous flow diffusion chamber for continuous measurements of ice nucleating particles. Results from these measurements will be shown at the upcoming International Aerosol Conference
5/1/18 Handix Scientific was awarded a Phase I STTR grant by the US Department of Energy to develop a new method of measurement of ice nucleating particles in collaboration with Clemson University.
4/9/18 Results from a study using the Open-path Cavity Ringdown Spectrometer led by Dr. Tim Gordon from Handix Scientific with collaborators from the National Park Service and Aerodyne Research have been published.
