Objective

Deliverables

  • First SCIMS Quantum Mechanical Calculations

    Provision quantum mechanical computational calculations needed for the work packages and individual research projects, in addition to providing an advanced training course on electronic structure calculations.

  • Improved Knowledge of SCIMS Ion-Molecule Processes involved in IMS (MS), PTR/SRI-MS, SIFT-MS & SIFDT-MS First report

    A greater experimental and theoretical understanding of underlying ion-molecule reactions so that knowledge is gained as to how ion chemistry can be manipulated to enhance or diminish key chemical processes; this will involve research on dopants, reduced electric fields, switching and multiple reagent ions, ionization sources, effects of humidity, pressure and temperature etc., mainly, but not exclusively, involving ESRs 1 & 2.

  • First OH Total Reactivity Measurements

    Determination of atmospheric OH reactivity and quality of OH reactivity measurements compared to Laser Spectroscopic values.

  • Improved knowledge of SCIMS Ion Molecule Processes Number 2

    A greater experimental and theoretical understanding of underlying ion-molecule reactions so that knowledge is gained as to how ion chemistry can be manipulated to enhance or diminish key chemical processes; this will involve research on dopants, reduced electric fields, switching and multiple reagent ions, ionization sources, effects of humidity, pressure and temperature etc., mainly, but not exclusively, involving ESRs 1 & 2. Second Report.

  • First SCIMS Applications in Bioscience

    Development of SCIMS technologies for bioscience applications, and in particular SCIMS use in breath analysis, skin emanations and headspace analysis of bacterial cultures. To standardize measurement protocols for direct comparison of technologies and analysis protocols - in particular suitable statistical analysis and modelling methodologies, including multivariate statistical methods (examples are principal component analysis or discriminant function analysis, and possibly pattern recognition algorithms to analyse spectra obtained in order to provide discriminatory procedures)

  • First SCIMS Applications in Environmental Science

    Reports on field campaigns. Determination of the emissions of biogenic VOCs into the atmosphere and their photochemical transformation.

  • Appointment of Exploitation Manager

    Exploitation manager appointed in month 6 to act as the independent Private Sector Involvement and Liaison Officer. His role is to ensure that that the needs of the private sector are being met and that collaborations are fully inclusive, and if not to help facilitate these. He will help to establish and maintain a liaison between the non-academic and academic institutions. He will also provide feedback on academic-private sector involvement and help to manage the communication, capability awareness and knowledge transfer between the sectors to ensure that information and opportunities are made available to interested stakeholders. The Exploitation Manager will also ensure that ideas and development are correctly apportioned.

  • Supervisory Board Setup

    Supervisory board set-up

  • Appointment of Project Manager

    Project manager in place before the start of the IMPACT network. Kathleen will support Chris Mayhew in coordinating the project. She will assemble agendas, publish minutes, compile and circulate reports, disseminate information to partners, coordinate annual progress and mid-term reviews, maintain progress records and provide a common point of contact for all participants.
