Air pollution affects human health and reduces the quality of our land and water. We cannot escape from it, even in our own homes. Atmosphere contains various sizes of particles which absorbs and scatters light when sunlight penetrates through the atmospheric layer. This absorption and scattering depend on the density and size of particles. By detection of the absorption and scattering light, we can measure the air pollutions.
Goal of the thesis is to design a simulator with ZEMAX and MATLAB for simulating the small particles (Aerosols) scattering and absorption effect to assist design and buildup a multi-wavelength laser system for air pollution monitoring. Students will start from learning and analysis a current MATLAB based “Coherent Doppler laser anemometer (CDLA) simulator”, then, improve the performance of current simulation, design a new user interface and algorithm by implement of ray tracing method and MATLAB toolboxes. The designed simulator will also be part of the new CDLA simulator to assist the design in the CDLA project.
