Conference paper

New particle formation in the atmosphere still attracts both atmospheric scientists and aerosol researchers. New laminar flow chamber was recently built in Finnish Meteorological Institute to study particle formation of binary and ternary compounds such as sulfuric acid–water and sulfuric acid–ammonia–water, respectively. The laminar flow chamber and its experimental setup are presented here.

Keywords Homogeneous nucleation, particle formation, sulfuric acid–water
