VSL neemt deel aan de volgende projecten binnen het speerpunt Milieu (informatie in het Engels):
Chemical pollutants in air - projectleider Annarita Baldan
Develop a method for producing stable reference samples for the calibration of instruments for measuring air quality, new measurement methods to detect volatile, highly reactive gases such as ammonia, and a reliable compact nitrogen dioxide microsensor using the innovative material graphene.
Automotive emissions - projectleider Hugo Ent
Build expertise in measuring small particle pollutants, particularly PGE (Platinum Group Elements) and mercury, and increase the required accuracy and reliability of measurements to allow future regulations regarding human health and environment to be developed.
Spectral solar UV - projectleider Omar El Gawhary
Develop new methods and cost effective instruments to bring uncertainty levels for measurements of solar ultraviolet (UV) light down to 2 % to enable detection of changes and to model future trends.
Spectral reference data - projectleider Stefan Persijn
Develop a European spectroscopy infrastructure that is traceable to SI units and a database of the spectral line data for improved atmospheric modelling.
