Paper Abstract

Amorphous carbon is an important and ubiquitous material, yet the understanding of the optical properties as a function of frequency and temperature remains a challenge. In particular, a comprehensive physics-based model has been a long term need. Building on past work on diamond and pyrolytic graphite, a new model of the optical properties of soot is developed. The model includes frequency and temperature dependence. Current progress is presented.
