Abstract
Small battery-powered instruments for the sensitive detection of nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and ozone (O3) are described. Because of their portability, they are ideal for studies of indoor air quality, measurements from aircraft, and other mobile platforms where power may be limited. For example, a miniature balloon-borne sonde, based on the chemiluminescence between luminol and NO2 has recently demonstrated the ability to measure ambient mixing ratios of NO2 between ground level and an altitude of 33 km. Recent 'add-on's to the model LMA-3 NO2 analyzer are discussed and the model LOZ-4 ozone monitor is described.
