Abstract

The use of an image dissector to size and determine the coordinates of suspended particles is described. The device uses a laser light source and 90° scattering. Volume scanning is accomplished using the internal x-y dissector scan and a mechanically stepped movement in z. Current application is toward the Atmospheric Cloud Physics Laboratory under development by NASA for a series of Space Shuttle experiments.
