Abstract
The inverse problem of retrieving the particle size distribution from the intensity of the diffracted field is solved using two numerical methods, the Chin-Shifrin algorithm and Singular Value Decomposition. The theory used in the inversion is based on the Fraunhofer approximation. We used the Lorenz-Mie theory to generate the intensity data produced from a series of normal size distributions. The distributions scan the interval of radius 0.1 micrometers < a < 17 micrometers . From our result we can set limits to the interval of particle size where the Fraunhofer approximation is valid.
