continuous flow diffusion chamber development
Handix Scientific is working closely with Colorado State University's Department of Atmospheric Science to build an improved version of their Continuous Flow Diffusion Chamber. The new design features a recirculating refrigeration system and automates the preparation and operation of the instrument to enable quasi-autonomous measurements of ice nucleating particles in the atmosphere or laboratory.
The main chamber is identical to that used in several of CSU's CFDC systems that have been deployed on many different platforms and environments. More information regarding the CFDC can be found on Dr. Paul DeMott's webpage located here.
