A fiber-optic particle size monitor for on-line measurement is proposed. This monitor consists of a light-illumination probe and several pickup probes, which are composed of optical fibers and rod lenses. The characteristics of this monitor are discussed in terms of the configuration parameters, and some experimental results for confirming the operation are presented.
