Abstract
The purpose of the work described in the report was to undertake an assessment of the infrared extinction properties of smoke aerosols, both from the standpoint of understanding the extinction behaviour and also to be able to make recommendations for smoke aerosol materials which have high infrared extinction properties. A number of promising inorganic and organic materials have been identified and their properties are discussed. Proposals are also made for an experimental programme based on the recommendations of materials discovered by the work of this study to be good candidates for infrared obscurants when deployed as aerosol smokes.
