Aerosols

“Aerosols are everywhere, there is gas to breathe.” We are surrounded by aerosols. Particles dissolved in gases. Solid particles like dust and soot, as well as liquid ones, like spraying droplets and sneezing output are intruding our airways with every breath we take. It is an inevitable task to know more about particles in the surrounding air and working spaces. Aerosol production and measurement techniques allow the simulation and control of particles in a laboratory setup. Combining these technologies with an active lung simulator like the i-Lung provides uncountable options of simulation and measurement.

It is the task of the project AlveoPic to refine simulation possibilities and anatomical and physiological parameters of the i-Lung. The project team will work on solutions to make aerosol deposition measurements even more precise and meaningful.
