Abstract

Small-angle laser light diffraction has been used to measure the size distribution and relative concentration of solid particles in liquids. The technique has been extended from spherical to non-spherical convex particles, to the determination of absolute concentration and, finally, to systems where the values of refractive index of solid and liquid are close together.
