Ultrafine smoke particles stick together to form chain-like aggregates. We find that the particle density has long-range correlations of the same form in iron, zinc or silicon dioxide aggregates. The correlation data suggest a power-law spatial dependence giving a Hausdorff dimension between 1.7 and 1.9. We discuss the consistency of these results with a model based on percolation. We also compare our results with a random-walk model, which has a nominal Hausdorff dimension of 2.
