Principle of operation

Measured parameter Number concentration of submicrometer aerosol particles
Operating principle

The particles are detected and counted by a simple optical detector after a supersaturation vapor (butanol or water) condenses onto the particles, causing them to grow into larger droplets. The CPC uses a (laser diode) light source, a condensing lense, an internal microprocessor control, volumetric flow control and a front panel display.
