Even nowadays, in the age of growing electromobility, the understanding of soot formation in combustion processes will remain import for many years to come.

Florian Bauer’s In situ characterization of absorbing species in stationary premixed flat flames using UV–Vis absorption spectroscopy shows the potential of optical metrology in analyzing soot species like polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons during the combustion process.

Florian Bauer works at the Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics, his supervisor is Stefan Will. The original publication can be found in Applied Physics B.
