Abstract: [1] The Leipzig Aerosol Cloud Interaction Simulator (LACIS) was used to measure equilibrium sizes of particles at relative humidities (RHs) up to 99.1%. Particles of substances with well-known hygroscopic behavior (NaCl and (NH 4 ) 2 SO 4 ) were used for the measurements. The intention was to check the proper functionality of LACIS for this measurement mode. Equilibrium sizes were also simulated on the basis of Köhler theory, by (1) assuming ideal solutions and (2) accounting for the nonideality of the drople…
