An improved atomizer based on the design of Liu and Lee has been developed. The atomizer requires a solution feed rate of only 0.1 mL/min for a stable output. A monodisperse aerosol generator can be obtained using an electrostatic classifier and the system is capable of continuous operation for extended periods of over 24 hours depending on the size of the solution reservoir used.
