Paper Abstract

Image blurring as a result of stochastic particle-particle interactions has been investigated for a particle projection system. A comparative analysis of the currently available analytical theories is presented. The results from these theories are also compared with Monte Carlo simulation results. Large variations in results and serious disagreements between the different theoretical approaches are found. The origin of the discrepancies arising from the earlier theories are understood and explained on the basis of our recently developed theory with two key concepts: consideration of nearest-neighbor interactions only, and a randomization length, over which the interactions are correlated.
