The LAMOS group is equipped with an HPC cluster, called Aether. The cluster is based on Intel's new Broadwell architecture and was installed in November 2016.
LAMOS group, in collaboration with the DOAS group of IUP, developed an in-house prototype instrument, used in air-pollution studies. The novel imaging-DOAS (differential optical absorption spectroscopy) instrument IMPACT (Imaging MaPper for AtmospheriC observaTions, see fig. below) provides full-azimuthal pointing (360∘) with a large vertical coverage (∼41∘). Complete panoramic scans are acquired at a temporal resolution of ∼15 min, enabling the retrieval of NO2 vertical profiles over the entire panorama around the measurement site. This instrument has participated in two high visibility international campaigns (CINDI & AQABA).
