"In these series of experiments, mixtures of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide were irradiated in an absorption cell with monochromatic radiation found in the tropospheric region of the atmosphere. The irradiated mixtures were then introduced into a Wilson type cloud chamber to investigate the effects of these specific wavelength induced gas to particle conversions on nucleation. Results showed that sulfur dioxide could not be the sole agent for the formation of condensation nuclei. A mixture of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide irradiated at 3660 angstroms produced copious droplet formation identifying nitrogen dioxide as an integral reactant in nuclei production"--Abstract, page ii.
