    • Monday, October 3, 2011 (8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.)
  • Schedule PDF
    • Day 1 will focus on hardware, data acquisition, and analysis issues of importance to all AMS users. Progress and advances in new instrumentation (ACSM, SP-AMS, CIMS-AMS) will also be discussed.
    • Day 2 will primarily focus on ToF-AMS data analysis issues. New developments in the data analysis software (Squirrel, PIKA, PMF) will be introduced and best practice recommendations from the recent Boulder Clinic will be presented. More detailed schedules will be sent out shortly.
    • Day 3 will be not have a formal agenda to allow for those who plan to attend tutorials to do so but will be open for discussions of specific users’ questions and issues in an open mike format.

March-2013 CIMS Meeting and 5th AMS Clinic in Boulder

  • Presentations shown (most of the Clinic is hands-on without formal presentations)
    • John Jayne on TOF Thresholds
    • Joel Kimmel on Thresholds and other TOF concepts
    • Filament replacement presentation
    • Q-AMS Manual (has procedure for replacing filaments and servo)
    • Phil Croteau: RIE of SO4 in the ACSM
    • Jay Slowik: ME-2 Igor Tool
    • Discussion of cell phone towers:
      • First, find out which frequencies are used by the towers. Frequencies > 1 GHz or so are filtered by the Acquiris card (even with the highest "bandwidth" setting), while lower frequencies tend to be more problematic. Note that a company such as Verizon uses multiple frequencies at different towers (and sometimes in the same tower), so you need to find out the specific ones used there.
      • You can test for the electromagnetic energy using an RF detector. See some pictures at this link, with a "3-axis antenna" and detector. The detector picked up the rigth frequencies for the cell towers and with the expected spatial pattern (turns out that the antennas are very directional and don't transmit any energy directly below, even a few meters down). That equipment is expensive ($15k?) but I think there are companies that can do the testing for you (that said, it may be almost as much work as bringing the AMS there, depending how hard that is...).
