Abstract: This paper will present the lethality data that has been collected at this time and the planned future studies. The results show that rapid ramp-up heating times are critical to obtaining valid lethality data at high temperatures because an extensive number of spores are killed before reaching the target temperature. Exploratory experiments have also been performed using a laser to rapidly heat coupons.
