Fundamentals and applications in aerosol spectroscopy.


Fundamentals and applications in aerosol spectroscopy.

Ed. by Ruth Signorell and Jonathan P. Reid.

CRC Press


509 pages




Physical and environmental scientists introduce the new but rapidly developing field of aerosol spectroscopy, survey some of its applications to problems involving the atmosphere and astronomy, and point out the many remaining gaps in understanding the fundamental processes. The studies are presenting in sections on decreasing wavelength of light/electrons: infrared spectroscopy; Raman spectroscopy; visible-light-scattering/ultraviolet spectroscopy, fluorescence, and scattering; and ultraviolet, X-ray, and electron beam studies. The topics include a molecular model to analyze the infrared spectra of aerosols, Raman spectroscopy of single particles levitated by an electrodynamic balance for atmospheric studies, the femtosecond spectroscopy and detection of bio-aerosols, and applications of scanning transmission X-ray microscopy to atmospheric aerosol research.
