Abstract
MANY COMBUSTION EXPERIMENTS INVOLVING PARTICLE SIZING AND RADIATION MEASUREMENT REQUIRE AN ACCURATE KNOWLEDGE OF THE REFRACTIVE (N) AND ABSORPTION (K) INDICES OF SOOT. EVEN THOUGH SOOT IS A COMPLEX HYDROCARBON WITH A PARTICULARLY HIGH C:H MASS RATIO, VALUES FOR N AND K FOR CARBON ARE OFTENUSED AS BEING EQUIVALENT FOR SOOT. LITERATURE VALUES OF N AND K FOR SOOT AND CARBON SHOW WIDE SCATTER: 1.40
