"An expert is a person who has found out by his own painful experience all the mistakes that one can make in a very narrow field."

Niels Bohr, Danish physicist and Nobel Prize winner

schnaiTEC can share their experience and know-how in the following fields:

  • Development of scientific instrumentation that is based on optical methods

    • Instrumentation for laboratory research​, e.g. cloud chamber instrumentation

    • Instrumentation for field research, e.g. airborne instruments

  • Particle light scattering simulations

    • Expected signal of optical particle instruments, e.g. light scattering spectrometers

    • Mie calculations for spherical particles

    • Multiple-sphere clusters, e.g. absorption and light scattering by fractal soot particles 

    • T-matrix calculations for spheroidal particles

    • Geometric optics for ice crystals

  • Image analysis
