Abstract: The paper describes the instrumental set-up and first experiments with the mobile Single Particle Analysis and Sizing System (SPASS) for the on-line characterization of single atmospheric aerosol particles. The performance of the SPASS in terms of mass resolution and sizing capabilities of the laser velocimeter has been evaluated, as well as the relative detection sensitivity depending on particle size and chemical composition. The instrument performance is illustrated with results from a 24hr measurement period during winter in Milan, Italy.
