Paper Abstract

Within the framework of the small-angle approximation, a rigorous analytic solution to the problem of determining the instrumental function has been obtained for measurements of the scattering phase functions considering finite angular sizes of a radiation source and receiver. It has been shown that the instrumental function is described by an integral of a product of the Bessel functions. The instrumental function is expressed in terms of elementary functions. The effect of the instrumental function on the accuracy of measuring small-angle scattering-phase functions for different particle sizes is discussed.
