Title:A K-BAND MICROWAVE SPECTROMETER FOR STUDYING ATMOSPHERIC REACTIONS
Author(s):Medcraft, Chris
Subject(s):Atmospheric science
Abstract:A segmented Chirped Pulse Fourier Transform Microwave (CP-FTMW) spectrometer has recently been installed in the Molecular Photonics Laboratories at UNSW Sydney. It covers the K-band (18-26 GHz) with an 18 MHz per segment bandwidth. This frequency range permits probing samples at room temperature and in a supersonic expansion. The stable products of atmospheric oxidation reactions of biological and anthropogenic volatile organic carbons (VOCs) will probed in a room temperature cell. Reactive and transient species will be probed in a supersonic expansion using a custom discharge mixing nozzle. The nozzle combines a standard high voltage discharge source with a secondary source introduced into the expansion via a capillary gas line. This secondary source is pulsed to reduce gas load and improve sample density. Performance and preliminary results will be presented along with supporting \textit{ab initio} calculations.
