Paper Abstract

Particles measurement systems based on the principles of statistical optics have the potential to be simple and robust as they possess a fundamental method of light intensity calibration and considerable information can in principle be extracted from a single detector. One practical limitation for the application of statistical optics to on- line and in-situ particle measurements is the low fluctuation power. It is shown how the fluctuations may be increased by the use of structured light and a practical demonstration is performed on a flowing suspension of latex particles.
