Abstract:The functionality of silicon nanoparticles is strongly size-dependent, so there is a pressing need for laser diagnostics that can characterize aerosolized silicon nanoparticles. The present work is the first attempt to extend time-resolved laser-induced incandescence (TiRe-LII), a combustion diagnostic used for sizing soot, to size silicon nanoparticles. TiRe-LII measurements are made on silicon nanoparticles synthesized in a low-pressure plasma reactor containing argon. Molecular dynamics (MD) is used to pred… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
