Abstract

An integrating nephelometer was adapted electronically to study the electrooptical properties of aerosol particles. The increase in light scattering coefficient due to orientation of nonspherical particles in the pulsed electric field and the decay of this signal were measured. Examples of the data for laboratory generated aerosols and atmospheric aerosols are presented.
