“We conduct both laboratory and field-based experiments with the aim of unravelling how climate change impacts the ecosystem-atmosphere exchange of biogenic VOCs...In these studies, it is vital to be able to track changes in the VOC blend and concentration in real-time with our PTR-ToF-MS instruments. The compact size and mobility have allowed us to bring our sensitive PTR-TOF 1000 ultra instruments to the Arctic tundra to measure ecosystem fluxes of VOCs.”
"We have a longstanding history with IONICON instruments to measure eddy covariance fluxes of NMVOCs in the atmosphere...The eddy covariance method requires fast measurements (e.g. on the order of 10Hz)...We have used IONICON instruments on board of aircraft or ground based measurement sites to perform these types of measurements."
"We use a PTR-TOF-MS to study the chemistry and emission of VOCs focusing on wildfires and land-atmosphere exchange. The custom-built instrument allows us to carry out the trace gas concentration and flux measurements on a research aircraft and on the ground with outstanding response time, mass resolution, and sensitivities."

From SIFT to ultimate performance PTR-TOF trace gas analyzers The success story of PTR-TOFMS has its roots in the so-called “Flowing Afterglow Technique”, introduced in the 1960s. From this starting point continuous research and innovations by various experts, who wanted to eliminate instrumental drawbacks and shortcomings, have led to different technological milestones, among them SIFT-MS.
