Shoreview, MN—The University of Minnesota's Particle Technology Laboratory, in cooperation with TSI Incorporated, is pleased to announce the 42nd Aerosol and Particle Measurement Short Course August 21-23, 2017 at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis.
This course includes both lectures and hands-on lab sessions taught by a number of world-renowned experts in both academia and industry. The course will provide basic aerosol measurement and sampling skills for individuals entering in the aerosol and particle field. This year's course includes a wide range of fundamental topics, such as Aerosol Mechanics, Light Scattering Fundamentals and Optical Techniques, Condensation Particle Counters, Filtration Fundamentals and Applications, Inertial Impactors and Aerodynamic Measurements, and Biological Aerosol Detection and Characterization, as well as many other important topics.
"TSI is pleased to continue its partnership with the University of Minnesota to provide this outstanding aerosol short course, which includes extensive hands-on lab sessions with a broad range of the latest particle instrumentation. Equally, we are excited to offer our hands-on Thursday lab this year as well," said Brian Osmondson, Business Director, Research and Analytical Instruments.
Participants will have the opportunity to gain a fundamental understanding of aerosol properties and behaviors and receive practical training on skills to sample, measure, and characterize airborne particulate matter in a variety of applications, while earning continuing education credits, according to David Pui, Proffesor at the University of Minnesota and director of the short course.
Attendees will also visit TSI Headquarters for hands-on lab experiments during the second day (Tuesday, August 22, 2017) of the short course. Following the short course, TSI will be holding an additional hands-on training with a variety of TSI instruments on Thursday, August 24, 2017. These sessions will provide smaller group sizes, more time with the instruments and futher application conversation with TSI experts.
