While time-resolved laser-induced incandescence (TiRe-LII) shows promise as a diagnostic for sizing aerosolized iron nanoparticles, the spectroscopic and heat transfer models needed to interpret TiRe-LII measurements on iron nanoparticles remain uncertain. This paper focuses on three key aspects of the models: the thermal accommodation coefficient; the spectral absorption efficiency; and the evaporation sub-model. Based on a detailed literature review, spectroscopic and heat transfer models are… CONTINUE READING
