9/1/19 POPSNET - Lead by Dr. Allison McComiskey, the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement User Facility is launching a campaign using POPS to “deploy a 13-site network of aerosol microphysical property measurements (number concentration and size distribution) across the ARM Southern Great Plains domain using low-cost, simple, and robust instruments. The measurement strategy is designed to minimize a major source of uncertainty associated with comparing global models with point measurements—the so-called ‘representation error’ (Schutgens et al. 2017.) The representation error arises because aerosol concentrations at a single measurement site can be persistently higher or lower than the average across a large model box (i.e., the measurement location is not representative of the area.) While low-cost instruments may lack some features of conventional instruments, when deployed in such a way as to target the representation error, they are more likely to provide the specific information needed to reduce the large uncertainty range in global climate model simulations.”

4/9/19 We’ve recently been awarded two Phase I SBIR projects focusing on atmospheric instrumentation. The Department of Energy is supporting an effort to develop a small, low-cost cloud condensation nuclei measurement device, which is a collaboration with Dr. Donald Huffman and Prof. Alex Huffman (University of Denver). The Office of Naval Research is also funding a project to develop an open-path cavity ringdown system for measuring atmospheric light extinction at wavelengths relevant for directed energy systems. Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about either topic.

10/9/18 Handix Scientific’s Tim Gordon and Shantanu Jathar's group at Colorado State University were highlighted in a story published by CSU’s Energy Institute on the recently developed solar-powered POPS. Data from the POPS are also pushed to a cloud-based data repository for remote user access. A small network of these sampling stations will be deployed later this year. 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.
