Radial Differential Mobility Analyzer (RDMA)
"Transfer function for Radial Differential Mobility Analyzer (RDMA) is found experimentally using the tandem Differential Mobility analyzer (DMA) setup. The performance of RDMA is evaluated in the size range of 13 nm to 100 nm. It has been shown that the transfer function of the RDMA broadens, thus loosing its classifying power, for aerosol particles with diameter less than 30 nm. The deterioration in the performance of the mobility analyzer is attributed to Brownian diffusion and space charge effects. Further, modifications in the geometry of RDMA and the mode of operation of the cylindrical DMA is suggested in order to minimize both the above effects and thus improve the performance of the DMA in the smaller size range (aerosol particles with diameter less than 30 nm)"--Abstract, leaf iii.
