The low-angle laser light scattering method in the study of pulse liquid atomization


The features of the application of the low-angle laser light scattering method in the study of pulse formation of aerosol media are considered. A modification of a measuring setup for the study of evolution of a cloud simulated in laboratory conditions beginning almost from the instant just after its formation is suggested.
