Abstract
We propose the measurement of particle size, which is based on the visibility measurement of the pre-detection signal corresponding to particle transit of the sensing volume in a photon correlation LDA arrangement. It is shown that a good estimate of the visibility is the ratio of the contents of two specific channels of the Fourier transform of the autocorrelation function. We show that in a wide range of experimental conditions this ratio is a monotonous function of particle size. This circumstance leads to the possibility of defining calibration curves for practical devices.
