Short summary
Detailed understandings of the light absorption property of black carbon (BC) particles and its relation to the mixing state and morphology are important. In this study, the enhancement of light absorption of BC due to coating (lensing effect) in a well-aged air mass was observed at an East Asian outflow site in Japan using a photoacoustic spectrometer, and its relation with mixing state and morphology of individual particles was examined based on transmission electron microscope analyses.
