A device to atomize medication (water) molecules to sizes ranging from 5 to 20 µm. This is most easily achieved by modifying existing jet nebulizers to create particle sizes to our specification.
The goal of this project is to develop a device that can selectively produce liquid particles in the range of 5 to 20 µm. This device should safely and accurately produce the particles with precision of 10% to the desired mean.
Available devices tend to be quite complex, and expensive.
It would be ideal to select a specific particle size to analyze the different effects it has on the larynx.
Conduct research to determine which way to atomize particles is the best.
