Particle Classroom Series II: The Basics of Laser Diffraction

Back to Particle Characterization Products Overview
Back to Particle Webinar List

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.
