Special Journal Issue on Laser-Induced Incandescence

The journal Applied Physics B: Lasers and Optics, has published a feature issue on LII in June 2006 (Volume 83, Number 3).  This special issue was coordinated by Guest Editor Christof Schulz on behalf of the LII community, and includes an editorial, a report on the status of making quantitative measurements with LII, and twelve research papers covering modeling, experimental, and analytical developments.
The titles of the papers are:
  • Laser-induced incandescence: recent trends and current questions
  • Heat conduction from a spherical nano-particle: status of modeling heat conduction in laser-induced incandescence
  • Influence of polydisperse distributions of both primary particle and aggregate size on soot temperature in low-fluence LII
  • Peak soot temperature in laser-induced incandescence measurements
  • Modeling of time-resolved laser-induced incandescence transients for particle sizing in high-pressure spray combustion environments: a comparative study
  • Soot volume fractions and primary particle size estimate by means of the simultaneous two-color-time-resolved and 2D laser-induced incandescence
  • Experimental and theoretical comparison of spatially resolved laser-induced incandescence (LII) signals of soot in backward and right-angle configuration
  • Influence of the temporal response of the detection system on time-resolved laser-induced incandescence signal evolutions
  • Laser-induced incandescence of flame-generated soot on a picosecond time scale
  • TR-LII for sizing of carbon particles forming at room temperature
  • Laser induced incandescence under high vacuum conditions
  • Laser induced incandescence measurements of soot volume fraction and effective particle size in a laminar co-annular non-premixed methane/air flame at pressures between 0.5–4.0 MPa
  • On particulate characterization in a heavy-duty diesel engine by time-resolved laser-induced incandescence
