Paper Abstract

We present static light scattering measurements of size-shape distributions of biological particles in suspension. Results are compared to the Rayleigh-Debye-Gans theory predictions. They are inverted to retrieve the geometrical parameters of the suspended particles and their size-distribution function. The inversion of data is performed by a combined method using normalized cubic B spline functions and linear programming, which is firstly applied to different sets of simulated data, to study its efficiency and stability in the presence of experimental noise.
