▪ Abstract 

Aerosols play a critical role in a diverse range of scientific disciplines. To characterize and quantify their role, it is essential that the fundamental details of mass and heat transfer between the aerosol particle and surrounding medium, the properties of multiphase droplets, and the coagulation of aerosol droplets be more fully explored. Elastic and inelastic light scattering can provide information on particle size, composition, morphology, and temperature. In addition, spatial inhomogeneities in composition and temperature can be probed. We review how such techniques can be used to develop an understanding of the chemical and physical dynamics of a single aerosol droplet.
