Heating of three-layer solid aerosol particles by laser radiation.

Author information

Stepanov Institute of Physics, Belarus National Academy of Sciences, Minsk.


The heating of lidar-irradiated multilayer particles is analyzed theoretically and numerically by solution of the heat conduction equation. The internal intensity and temperature distributions are presented for particles composed of air, quartz, and carbon. It is shown that the heating times of such particles substantially depend on particle radii, layer position, and shell thickness. In particular, the decrease in thickness of the surface carbon layer can result in a reduction of the heating time of multilayer particles.
