BPN868: Self-Cleaning Mass Sensor for Particulate Matter Monitors


When people inhale small particles, such as soot, they may develop pulmonary, cardiac and neural problems, and millions may die prematurely. Therefore, there is need for widely accessible particulate- matter monitors to enable individuals to avoid areas of high particulate concentration. We propose to test means conceived for cleaning the surfaces of the particle mass-measuring sensors after each particulate deposition, as well as recently reported spectroscopic means for determining the chemical compositions of deposited particles.
