Abstract

Pegasor’s AQ Indoor sensor (AQI) uses a new
method for evaluating the count median diameter
(CMD) of an aerosol (Saukko, 2016). A modified ion
trap cycles voltages from 1 to 1000 V, trapping
charged particles along with ions. The larger the
particles, the lower their electrical mobility and the
larger the trap voltage needed to remove them.
