Dependence of Laser-Induced Incandescence on PhysicalProperties of Black Carbon Aerosols: Measurementsand Theoretical Interpretation

The single-particle soot photometer (Model SP2) developed by Droplet Measurement Technologies, Inc. in Boulder, CO (Stephens et al. 2003; Schwarz et al. 2006; Moteki and Kondo 2007 and references therein) quantifies the mass of BC inside individual particles by means of laser-induced incandescence (LII) without interference from internally mixed semi-volatile materials or mineral dust particles.
