The Integrating Sphere Integrating Nephelometer is a novel and unique reciprocal nephelometer that uses an integrating sphere with attached truncation-reduction tubes to contain the sample volume and to integrate the scattered light. Its main advantage compared with current integrating nephelometers is a sevenfold reduction in truncation angle, which reduces errors in measured scattering from large particles. Additional features include improved sampling efficiency for large particles and a well-defined operating wavelength.
