Abstract
The report contains guidelines for routine calibration of cascade impactors. The basic calibration technique discussed in the report involves generating uniformly sized particles, testing individual stages, determining particle number concentrations by light scattering, and calculating efficiencies for given test parameters. Each component of the technique is discussed. The results of calibrations of three cascade impactors and comparisons with published studies are presented.
