Measured In-situ Mass Absorption Spectra for Nine Forms of Highly-absorbing Carbonaceous Aerosol

April 23, 2018
Author(s)
Christopher D. Zangmeister, Rian You, Elizabeth M. Lunny, Arne Jacobson, Mitchio Okumura, Michael R. Zachariah, James G. Radney
Mass absorption coefficient spectra were measured between λ = 500 nm and 840 nm for nine forms of highly-absorbing carbonaceous aerosol: five samples generated from gas-, liquid- and solid- fueled flames; spark-discharge fullerene soot; graphene and

Light Source Effects on Aerosol Photoacoustic Spectroscopy Measurements

October 6, 2016
Author(s)
James G. Radney, Christopher D. Zangmeister
Photoacoustic spectroscopy measurements of flame-generated soot aerosol coated with small amounts of water yielded absorption enhancements that were dependent on the laser used: quasi- continuous wave (Q-CW, ≈ 650 ps pulse duration and 78 MHz repetition

Packing density of rigid aggregates is independent of scale

May 14, 2014
Author(s)
Christopher D. Zangmeister, James G. Radney, Michael R. Zachariah
Large planetary seedlings, comets, microscale pharmaceuticals, and nanoscale soot particles are made from rigid, aggregated subunits that are compacted under low compression into larger structures spanning over 10 orders of magnitude in dimensional space

Dependence of Soot Optical Properties on Particle Morphology: Measurements and Model Comparisons

February 18, 2014
Author(s)
James G. Radney, Rian You, Xiaofei Ma, Joseph M. Conny, Michael R. Zachariah, Joseph T. Hodges, Christopher D. Zangmeister
We measure the mass-specific absorption and extinction cross sections for laboratory-generated soot aerosols. Two soot morphologies are investigated, both comprising fractal aggregates of nearly spherical monomers. The first type consists of monomer chains

Direct measurements of mass-specific optical cross sections of single component aerosol mixtures

July 22, 2013
Author(s)
James G. Radney, Xiaofei Ma, Keith A. Gillis, Michael R. Zachariah, Joseph T. Hodges, Christopher D. Zangmeister
The optical properties of atmospheric aerosols vary widely, being dependent upon particle composition, morphology and mixing state. This diversity and complexity of aerosols motivates measurement techniques that can discriminate and quantify a variety of
