Aerosol and Particle Measurement Short Course 2022
Presented by the University of Minnesota and TSI Incorporated
This course includes both lectures and hands-on lab sessions taught by world-renowned experts in aerosol science. The short course provides basic aerosol measurement and sampling skills and is suitable for students or as a refresher course. Participants will learn basic aerosol measurement and sampling skills and have the opportunity to gain fundamental understandings of aerosol properties and behavior.

This part of the short course will provide hands-on experience to participants, with a variety of TSI® particle and aerosol instruments available to try.
Lab A: Transient Aerosols: Capturing Fast Size Distribution Changes
In this lab session, we will make measurements of the size distribution and particle number concentration of aerosols that exhibit highly transient behavior such as those emitted by internal combustion engines.
Lab B: Submicron Aerosol Generation and Measurement
In this lab session we will focus on submicron aerosol from two perspectives: measuring ultrafine particles in the atmosphere, and generating submicron calibration aerosol in the laboratory.
Lab C: Supermicron Aerosol Generation and Measurement
This lab will demonstrate two instruments that can generate aerosols larger than a micron, as well as several instruments appropriate for sizing such aerosols. Appropriate applications for each of these instruments will be discussed.
Lab D: Filtration: Filter Testing Concepts and Recommended Practices
In filter testing there are many parameters: what aerosol composition and size to use, what detector and flow rates to use, etc. We will show and discuss several automated testers that use the parameters appropriate for productively testing filters and filter media in several key applications.
