Optical Extinction Measurements of Single Absorbing Aerosol Particles

Lead Research Organisation: University of Bristol
Department Name: Chemistry

Abstract

The contribution of organic aerosol to the warming of the Earth's atmosphere remains uncertain because particle composition and morphology affect the absorption of sunlight. Using a recently developed spectroscopic apparatus, this project will measure precise optical properties of single, trapped aerosol particles.
