This is a version of the Aerodyname Aerosol Mass Spectrometer (AMS), with time-of-flight (TOF) capability, built and certified for operation on the NSF/NCAR GV (HIAPER). It is based on the original quadrupole design, but the addition of TOF capability increases the sensitivity and time (hence spatial) resolution and enables characterization of single particles. The basic measurement is size-resolved determination of the chemical composition of sub-micrometer non-refractory particles with spatial resolution typically less than 1 km.
