Laser-induced incandescence (LII) has become a powerful tool for in situ measurements of carbonaceous particles in combustion and ambient atmospheric environments. Applications of LII have been extended to measurements of particulates composed of non-carbonaceous materials for other applications. The interpretation of LII signals can be complicated, however, and reliable measurements employing this technique require an understanding of the fundamental processes that influence the signal. This workshop provides the opportunity to gather the leading researchers in the field for a forum to identify knowledge gaps, measurement artifacts, and potential new approaches to implementing LII and to provide a perspective for focusing future research on LII and its applications.
The 7th International Workshop on LII will be held in Lake Tahoe, CA USA and will start on Sunday evening June 19 by a welcome reception and will end at lunch on Wednesday June 22. During the workshop there will be oral presentations, posters sessions, and discussion sessions. We encourage participation from researchers in all fields interested in the application of LII for particle detection.
Meeting participants are invited for a tour of the Combustion Research Facility at Sandia in Livermore, CA on Thursday morning June 23rd. Please contact Hope Michelsen (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further information. Information about travel and accommodations can be found here.
Abstracts for contributions (oral presentations and posters) to the workshop should be submitted to Maelyn Melville at email@example.com by April 1st. Download the abstract template (.docx).
The present workshop follows a series of workshops held previously: 2005 – Duisburg, Germany; 2006 – Bad Herrenalb, Germany; 2008 – Ottawa, Canada; 2010 – Varenna, Italy; 2012 – Le Touquet, France; 2014 – Ven, Sweden.
We welcome you all to the 7th International Workshop on LII!
