Session


A 1-day course that will bring newcomers to the particle sizing field up to speed on the basics (including terminology, international standards and math) of particle size analysis. The main techniques (sieves, sedimentation, electrical sensing zone) will be covered but the main emphasis will be on light scattering techniques in particular dynamic light scattering (DLS; 1 - 1000 nm approx.) and laser diffraction (0.1 -3000 um approx.)
Instructor: Alan Rawle
Target Audience: Relative newcomers to particle size analysis including laboratory personnel, scientists, graduate students plus those with more experience of the technique but would like more background.
