The PhD student, Shogo Saito, visited the esteemed National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in Boulder, Colorado, as part of a collaboration with Prof Steve Brown, who is program leader in tropospheric chemistry and atmospheric remote sensing at NOAA.
Shogo is currently building a light-weight and compact instrument that is based on incoherent broadband cavity enhanced absorption spectroscopy for the ultra-sensitive detection of atmospheric halogenated species. During his week in Boulder he learned many tricks and secrets how to successfully design and run an instrument that will be going out into the field.
It was a break from the rain in Ireland too!
