Abstract (en)

Cosmic dust particles are distributed throughout the cold phases of the galaxies. This chapter shows how the properties of cosmic dust particles are derived from the interpretation of their absorption and emission spectra. It discusses approaches to physically realistic models for the computation of such spectra. Silicates make up the majority of the dust mass in most cosmic environments. Interstellar dust, at least in the diffuse medium, is dominated by amorphous silicates. The chapter deals with the optical properties of such silicates and discusses the state of the laboratory research and open problems. Either transmission or reflection IR spectroscopy is an important tool to analyze amorphization effects. The chapter describes the spectroscopic properties and the problems related to obtaining optical constants and emission/absorption cross sections of carbonaceous dust species. It summarizes the photoluminescence (PL) studies of silicon‐based nanoparticles.
