Particle Sizing by Inversion of Extinction Data
We consider the problem of inverting light scattering data, namely extinction data, in order to retrieve information about particle size distributions. In the so-called extinction methods,1 one measures the spectral turbidity of the sample or, in other words, the extinction coefficient τ (k), for different values of the wavenumber k of the incident light. More precisely, k represents a reduced wave number which takes into account the refractive index characterizing the suspension.
