Aerosols play a serious position in a large diversity of clinical disciplines, corresponding to atmospheric chemistry and physics, combustion technological know-how, drug supply and human well-being. This thesis explores the basics of a brand new process for shooting unmarried or a number of debris utilizing mild, and for characterising those debris by way of Raman or fluorescence spectroscopy. the end result of this learn represents an important improvement in optical manipulation suggestions, in particular in aerosol optical tweezing. it truly is verified that this method should be utilized to reviews of the mass lodging of gas-phase water molecules adsorbing onto a water floor. not just is that this a primary technique of curiosity to actual chemists, however it is a hugely vital quarter for figuring out the jobs of aerosol debris within the surroundings and their skill to develop into cloud droplets. This new approach for investigating aerosol dynamics offers to be basic in assisting us comprehend the oblique impact of aerosols at the climate.

2 Kinetics of Aerosol Mass Transfer Understanding the kinetics of mass transfer between the gaseous and condensed phases of aerosols is of crucial importance for rationalising many atmospheric processes, for example heterogeneous chemistry at the surface of aerosol particles and the formation and stability of clouds [1, 8–11]. Although the equilibrium state can be readily predicted, it is often important to consider if the aerosol size distribution can legitimately be considered to be determined solely by thermodynamic principles.

Understanding the factors which determine the particle size underpins all of aerosol science and is essential for the construction of accurate atmospheric models of past, present and future climate [2].
