NIXE - CAPS

New Ice eXpEriment - Cloud and Aerosol Particle Spectrometer

NIXE - CAPSAirborne spectrometer providing information on the size and number of cloud particles (drops and ice crystals) covering the size range of 0.6 - 900 µm in diameter.

NIXE - CAPS consists of two instruments:

CAS-Depol:

Cloud Aerosol Spectrometer

  • Light Scattering Technique
    particle by particle
  • Forward scatter: particle size
    Backscatter: shape
    Depolarization: asphericity
  • Dp = 0.6 - 50/µm

CIP-Greyscale:

Cloud Imaging Probe

  • Optical Imaging Technique
    particle by particle
  • Particle size & shape
    3 grey levels
    improved particle visibility
  • Dp = 15 - 900/µm
