Abstract

Results are presented on the statistical fluctuations occurring in a forward-light-scattering experiment to determine the particle size distribution. A sample of glass beads was measured using a Malvern 2600D instrument and analyzed with a proposed deconvolution procedure that incorporates the observed intensity fluctuations. This procedure yields a qualitative improvement of the solution, provides error intervals, and offers a better means for model discrimination.
