Manufactured by Palas GmbH in Germany, the Palas Cloud Droplet Analyzer is a high-resolution optical aerosol spectrometer optimized for measuring particle size distribution and number concentration of cloud aerosols like droplets and ice crystals.
Based on 90° optical light scattering measurement technology, high resolution particle count and size measurements can be made of droplets and ice crystals. Additionally, the cloud water content as well as mean droplet diameter can be reported.
This unique device is ideal for use by atmospheric researchers and specialist aerosol research groups. It’s already being used by leading researchers including at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) for Ice Nucleation Studies at AIDAc Facility
