Abstract
A classical iterative Lucy-Richardson (LR) inversion algorithm used for recovering particle-size distributions (PSD) from light-scattering data is proposed. The convergence of iteration is validated in the numerical simulation for three different distributions: the gamma, the log-normal, and the Rosin-Rammler. The accuracy of the inversion is checked graphically against the exact distribution with good results, even for the synthesized intensity data of a signal-noise-ratio smaller than 20 dB. Finally, an experiment with linear charge coupled device as the detector is carried out, and the PSD is recovered successfully by the LR inversion method.
