Using holographic technology, Stephen Holler, Ph.D., assistant professor of physics, has captured the many ways aerosol particles scatter and how that scattering is affected by their shape. Understanding scattering from complex aerosols can lead improved atmospheric models that help us better understand climate change. His efforts were published this past August in Scientific Reports, with co-authors Osku Kemppinen, Ph.D., and Matthew Berg, Ph.D., of Kansas State University; and Yuli Heinson, Ph.D., of Washington University.
