Paper Abstract

An apparatus for rapid particle size analysis has been developed, utilising the phenomenon of electric birefringence. A principle use is in analysing polydisperse colloid suspensions, where for a monomodal distribution, a complete size distribution plot is generated. This method can produce data in terms of an equivalent spherical diameter, but a unique feature is that if the particle shape is known then the results obtained give data on the true major dimension of the particles in the medium.
