Abstract

Multiple light scattering is an important issue in modern laser diffraction spectrometry. Most laser particle sizers do not account for multiple light scattering in a disperse medium under investigation. This causes an underestimation of the particle sizes in the case of high concentrations of scatterers. The retrieval accuracy is improved if the measured data are processed with multiple-scattering algorithms that treat multiple light scattering in a disperse medium. We evaluate the influence of multiple light scattering on light transmitted by scattering layers. The relationships among different theories to account for multiple light scattering in laser particle sizing are considered.
