Early Stages of Particle Formation in Aerosol Reactors: Measurement and Theory
One important frontier of aerosol science and technology is characterizing the initial stages of particle formation below 10 nm in size. Sub-10 nm particles play important roles by acting as seeds for particle growth, ultimately determining the final properties of the generated particles. Understanding the new particle formation in the atmosphere has recently become a heated topic in atmospheric science. In aerosol synthesis, tailoring the aerosol properties requires a thorough understanding and precise control of the particle formation processes, which in turn requires characterizing nanoparticle formation from the initial stages. This chapter reviews recently developed experimental and computational techniques for studying nascent particles in aerosol reactors. Using experimental and numerical data, it also summarizes the major research findings regarding particle formation and growth in aerosol reactors.
