Measurements of Absolute Concentration and Size Distribution of Particles by Laser Small Angle Scattering
The accurate and in-situ measurement of size distribution and concentration of particles is a subject of interest in a variety of indusrial applications including spray drying, spray combustion and milling machinery. A major concern is with particles within the size range of one to several hundred microns. Among the various scattering techniques of particle size measurement, methods based on the scattered light intensity profile in the forward small angles have made a great progress in recent years.
