Particle Classroom Series II: The Basics of Laser Diffraction

Webinar Description

Particle size analysis by laser diffraction offers many advantages. The technique is fast, reliable, and can be used for analyzing a wide range of particle sizes. In laser diffraction an optical model is used to convert scattering data into a particle size distribution. In this webinar, Dr. Jeff Bodycomb will discuss:

  • Exactly what happens when light strikes a particle
  • Light intensity and how it effects the measurement
  • Fraunhofer vs. Mie
  • Real and imaginary refractive index values


This is a great introduction to someone who wants to understand the science behind the measurement.
