The absorption and scattering (optical) properties of
soot are needed both to predict the continuum radiation
properties of soot and to interpret nonintrusive optical
measurements to find soot concentrations and structure.
This is a challenging problem, however, because soot
consists of small primary particles that combine into
branched aggregates that exhibit neither simple Rayleigh
nor Mie scattering behavior.
