We used small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) to measure soot development in one-dimensional, laminarpremixed flames. Scattering spectra were collected for two sooting ethylene/oxygen/argon flames at six positions above the burner surface. A detailed analysis of the scattering signals yielded the basic properties of the soot size distributions as a function of position. The experiments demonstrate that SANS can be used to extract spatially resolved, quantitative information about incipient soot formation and growth with better particle size resolution than light scattering and extinction.
