Capture Vaporizer AMS Spectral Database

This page is a compilation of spectra obtained with the Capture Vaporizer Aerosol Mass Spectrometer contributted by the AMS User Community. It complements the unit mass resolution (UMR) database and high resolution (HR) database for the AMS.

Spectra are named according to the following system:

A = Ambient spectra
L = Laboratory spectra
DEC = Deconvoluted
STD = Standard
SOA = SOA
HR = High resolution
UMR = Unit mass resolution
Database ID # (CV_xxx)

For instance, A_HR_CV_001 is an ambient sample analyzed at high resolution, and is the first ambient spectrum in the database.

Within each spectrum are several data waves. Waves that include "M" in their name are the open signal minus the closed signal (these are also the plotted waves), while waves with "C" in their name are the closed signal only.

If there are spectra that you would like added to the database please send them to Anne Handschy.

Note that replicates of spectra are of great interest. As in the NIST or Wiley databases, replicates allow the user to identify differences that may be due to impurities, different experimental conditions, instrumental differences, etc.

These spectra have been made available to the entire community. By using these spectra you agree to make appropriate citations of the papers referenced for the specific spectra that you use. Please honor this request so that the spectra can continue to be available to everyone. Also please cite this database as "Hu, W.; Handschy, A.; Jimenez, J. L., AMS Capture Vaporizer Spectral Database. URL: http://cires1.colorado.edu/jimenez-group/AMSsd_CV/." and the paper that describes it (Hu et al., AST, 2018) and Hu et al. ACS E&SC 2018.
