NFTL Attends 2019 HEMS Meeting

Five members of the NTFL attended the 2019 Harsh Environment Mass Spectrometry (HEMS) Workshop in September 2019 in Myrtle Beach, SC. The group presented on research related to the coded aperture miniature mass spectrometer (CAMMS) and connected with other researchers working on novel mass spectrometer designs and applications. Prof. Amsden presented on the "Use of Computational Sensing Techniques to Improve the Performance of Mass Spectrometers in Harsh Environment," Tanouir Aloui (Student Award Winner) presented on "Evaluation of Aperture Materials for Coded Apertures used in a Portable Cycloidal Miniature Mass Spectrometer," Kat Horvath (Student Award Winner) presented on "Designing a Coded Aperture Cycloidal Mass Analyzer to Detect Perfluorocarbon Tracers," and Raul Vyas presented on "A Comparison of Thermionic Filament and Carbon Nanotube Field Emitter Array-based Ion Sources in Coded Aperture Miniature Mass Spectrometers."
