This paper presents an overview of our work concerning
light scattering studies of soot in flames. We have
developed static light scattering (SLS) to an ability
where a complete in situ characterization of soot
cluster morphology can be obtained. The morphological
parameters we can measure are soot cluster radius of
gyration, fractal dimension, number of monomers per
cluster, and monomer radius. We have also developed an
SLS technique to measure the width of the size
