NOAA scientist’s patented design expands the limits of atmospheric research
The new design, invented by a researcher with NOAA’s Chemical Sciences Laboratory, is small, light, easy to operate, and measures NOx at levels more than ten times lower than possible with the previous generation of research-grade instruments. Andrew Rollins was awarded a U.S. Patent for his innovative design in August 2022. The NOAA Technology Partnerships Office helps NOAA to patent and then license new technologies in order to move them out of NOAA’s labs and into the hands of scientists and other users worldwide, where they can ultimately have broader impact.
