Abstract: In this work we report on the analysis of combustion-generated nano-organic carbon (NOC) particles by means of time-resolved fluorescence polarization anisotropy (TRFPA). NOC samples were collected in water from nonsooting regions of ethylene/air laminar flames. The size of collected particles was determined with subnanometer accuracy by exploiting femtosecond laser pulses as an excitation source. Moreover, the TRFPA measurements were realized by selecting narrow-wavelength bands within the fluorescence spectr…
