Short summary
High transmission efficiency is key for classifying and counting atmospheric aerosol below 10 nm. We developed a new high­-transmission inlet for the Caltech nano-­radial DMA (nRDMA) and successfully deployed the nRDMA, equipped with the new inlet, in chamber measurements, using a particle size magnifier (PSM) and a booster CPC as a counter. With this setup, we were able to measure size distributions of ions between 1.3 and 6 nm in mobility diameter.
