Abstract

The interaction of absorbing aerosols with pulsed light beams is considered. Approximate energy and mass conservation equations are developed which admit of analytic solutions for the aerosol temperature and vaporization state within a limited domain of values for the aerosol mass flux. Numerical solutions are obtained for the particular case of absorbing water droplets in an intense pulsed light beam, and the validity of these solutions is examined. A number of recommendations are made for future work on this problem.
