Abstract:

For various practical uses of the extinction properties of small particles, one must know the appropriate optical constants of the particulate medium and be able to properly calculate extinction from the optical constants. To know how well one can succeed in this, however, it is desirable to have carefully controlled tests comparing measured extinction for the small particles and calculated extinction. This report presents such findings for two different particulate systems - small aluminum particles and small carbon particles. Keywords Smoke, Particles, Aluminum, Carbon, Extinction, Infrared, Ultraviolet, and Optical constants.
