Abstract

We present the development of a new beta radiation source to detect total atmospheric aerosol loading of samples from a cascade impactor. Beer’s law principles are used to compare blank and sample substrates exposed to aerosol depositions to calculate total aerosol loading, including hydrocarbon aerosols which are invisible to other non-destructive techniques such as X-ray fluorescence.
