Abstract:

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.
