Abstract : We have proposed to develop and improve the function of a new environmental monitor using the Photoelectric Atmospheric Proportional Counter (PAPC) sensor technology. This is a simple, reliable, inexpensive, hand-held instrument for chlorinated contaminant measurements. The proposed objectives are to review and assess relevant pollutant monitoring technologies, to conduct concept analysis and design of PAPC sensor, to carry out bench-scale experiments for investigating the key properties of PAPC for environmental monitoring, to analyze data and delineate development needs, and to document results. jg p.3(1)
