Abstract

Thermal dispersion methods are used to produce a dry aerosol by heating the sample to high temperature and mixing the released product with a cold gas. The factors and conditions which severely affect the aerosol formation and transport with the use of electrothermal heating are treated in a tutorial form with respect to the knowledge of aerosol science. Some conclusions are also drawn on the systems in which other means of heating (e.g. lasers, sparks) are applied.
