Research topics

The GDR is mainly focused on fundamental research around the following 5 scientific axes :

Topic 1 : Synthesis, nucleation processes and characterisation of soot at source

Topic 2 : chemical analysis of the particulate and/or gaseous phases adsorbed on or absorbed by soot

Topic 3 : study of soot ageing in the atmosphere

Topic 4 : electromagnetic properties of soot, measurement and detection 

Topic 5 : Soot in other fields of application

Each of these themes is, moreover, conducive to the development of theoretical work, the results of which can then be confronted with those of field measurements and laboratory experiments for validation, or directly support certain experimental interpretations.
