Using This Equipment

For more information and to utilize this equipment, please contact Shimin Liu.

Equipment full name:  TSI Nanoscan SMPS nanoparticle sizer 3910 and Optical Particle Sizer


This portable, real-time instrument combines the NanoScan SMPS and the Optical Particle Sizer to quickly and accurately measure particles ranging three orders of size magnitude from 10 nanometers to 10 micrometers.


  • Two measurement modes:
  1. Scan real-time size distributions
  2. Single size concentration monitoring
  • Measures concentrations up to 1,000,000 particles per cubic centimeters

Example Applications

  • Point source identification
  • Nanotechnology/nanoparticle applications
  • Indoor/outdoor air quality investigations
  • Combustion/emission research
