Investigation of linearity of the UVAPS fluorescent signals
The fluorescence emitted by aerosol particles is registered by the UVAPS in one of 64 channels, depending on the intensity of the signal. The UVAPS does not provide the nominal values for the fluorescence intensity of the particles in arbitrary units such as relative fluorescence units (rfu), as is typically reported by the spectrophotometers. Instead, the intensity of the signals is reported on a scale from 1 to 64, corresponding to the channel numbers. Accordingly to the Beer-Lambert law, the fluorescence intensity should be directly proportional to the amount of fluorophores in the aerosol particles, in the absence of quenching. In order to facilitate interpretation of the UVAPS data in regard to the composition of airborne biological particles, a linearity of the fluorescent signals of the spectrometer was investigated.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
