8th International Workshop on Laser-Induced Incandescence
June 10, 2018 – June 13, 2018
Laser-induced incandescence has developed to a versatile technique for particle measurements in combustion, atmospheric, aerosol and nanoparticle science. In its beginnings limited to the measurement of carbonaceous particles, LII has proven to be also applicable to other materials opening new fields for researchers. Besides experimental challenges, a major field of LII science is the interpretation of signals and the modelling of the complex heat- and mass-transfer mechanisms.
Following a long series of previous workshops, this meeting is intended to bring together scientists from various research fields to discuss recent developments and future trends in LII and related fields. The workshop will be held in Tutzing on scenic Lake Starnberg, South of Munich, Germany, June 10 – 13, 2018 and is jointly organized by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Stuttgart and the Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics (LTT) in Erlangen.
The workshop’s main topic is the improvement of the characterization of nanoparticles by laser-induced incandescence. Particles of interest include soot, engineered nanoparticles, and aerosols, and the workshop addresses both experiment and simulation. Besides submissions discussing latest trends in LII theory, experiment, and application, contributions related to complementary techniques are welcome that either provide information on properties for LII or yield additional information for a more comprehensive particle characterization.
The workshop features both oral and poster sessions. Additionally special discussion sessions are foreseen devoted to “hot topics” in LII science.
More information about the workshop, the registration and abstract submission process, lab-tours to either DLR or LTT and transportation can be found at www.liiscience.org/2018_00/.
Submission Deadline: April 20, 2018
