Paper Abstract

We have developed a technique for measuring size distributions of particles in the 1 to l0μm range that are moving at speeds of up to 4mm/μsec transverse to the direction of observation. We do this by measuring intensity as a function of angle for light scattered from the particles using an electronic streaking camera to record variations in time. Initial experiments studying particles ejected from shocked lead surfaces indicate that there are two dominant size classes having diameters of approximately lμm and 6μm.
