Time-resolved LII (TIRE-LII) measurements are performed simultaneously at two different wavelengths in a sooting, premixed, flat acetylene flame under atmospheric pressure conditions. The influence of temporal response of the detection system on the measured evolution of the LII signal is discussed. The effect of the temporal response on the determination of particle size distributions is quantified for data evaluation starting some nanoseconds after the maximum particle ensemble temperature. Furthermore, it is investigated how the temporal response of a slow detection system affects the determination of accommodation parameters, e.g. thermal accommodation coefficients, and evaporation coefficients, if TIRE-LII signals are modelled including particle heating as well as particle cooling, and if deconvolution techniques are not applied to the measured LII signal.
