“50 Years of Contribution in Aerosol Science and Technology“

‍Prof. David Pui contributed to the development of the mobility classification technique for producing monodisperse aerosols of known sizes. This work led to the Differential Mobility Analyzer (DMA) and nanoDMA commercialized by TSI and has been the workhorse in the field of aerosol science and nanotechnology. His electrometer method for determining the particle number concentration is the basis of an ISO standard for calibrating condensation particle counters. David is well known for his work on aerosol charging and neutralization, aerosol sampling and transport, and aerosol generation by electrospray. Winning the Fuchs Memorial Award, the pinnacle of aerosol science, was a fitting tribute to David’s achievement. His induction into the National Academy of Engineering adds one more prominent distinction to his exceptional career. The research of David also has a broad impact in a variety of industries. He is the director of Center for Filtration Research which is considered as the leading international center on air and water filtration. In the recent years, his team has developed large-scale air cleaning systems for urban pollutants that are deployed in China and India.
