In the Research Talk 8 program held on October 22, 2021, the Untirta International Service Center (Pelita) presented Dr Maiqi Xiang who disseminated the results of his research in the nanotechnology laboratory of the Université de technologie de Compiègne, France. At the event which took place from 14.00-15.00 WIB, Dr Maiqi discussed the issue of air quality which is trending topics today. Guided by Dr. Mekro Permana Pinem, this monthly activity was attended by more than 90 people consisting of students and lecturers in the UNTIRTA environment.
As we know, air pollution causes various problems such as damage to ecosystems and human health. Because, the air polluted with small nano-sized particles or submicrons is very much today and some of them are toxic. This small particle size is very difficult to detect and quantify, with Dr Maiqi’s method successfully solving the problem by creating a particle mass-based measurement method. This information is essential to be able to create a relevant air filter system and work effectively.
