Examples of field deployment
Since its invention, the PTR3 has been deployed and successfully tested in various locations and experiments. Some examples are listed below:
- chamber experiments, e.g. the CLOUD experiment at CERN
- flow reactor experiments, see e.g. Hansel et al., 2018
- field experiments: in the Boreal forest of Hyytiälä, Finland; in the Andes of Bolivia
