As a contractor, I have done LabVIEW consulting
on several other
aerosol instruments, including particle sizers and counters, aerosol
spectrometers, the Single Particle
Photometer made by Droplet
Technologies, and the Continuous Flow Diffusion Chamber (CFDC)
operated by Paul
DeMott's group at Colorado State University. The CFDC is an
instrument for studying the ice nucleation properties of aerosol
particles. Several years ago, the CFDC and
PALMS were brought together for field measurements at the Storm Peak Laboratory near
Steamboat Springs, Colorado, to investigate the composition of
Many examples of my previous work are described on this web site, including previous scientific and utiltity LabVIEW programs, drivers for various instruments available for free download, and several publications and presentations I have written, including two that were selected as finalists in the Research catagory for the NIWeek paper contest.
One of the most recent additions to this website is the OCC Streaming Data System, a flexible suite of components that make it easy to read a wide variety of data streams into any LabVIEW program.
I have been involved with Colorado LabVIEW user
groups for many years, and since mid-2004, I have been helping to
user group for advanced LabVIEW programmers throughout Colorado.
The group is known as ALARM
Architects of the Rocky Mountains) and meets bi-monthly, alternating
between Golden and Boulder, Colorado. Visit the ALARM website for information
about future meetings.
