Using the optical transform intensity and a new inversion formula, we demonstrate the recovery of particulate size distributions. For the optical experiments, chrome masks are fabricated to provide three distributions: the gamma, the log-normal, and the bimodal exponential. Excellent agreement with the theory is obtained.
