Abstract

A new solution to the inversion of Fraunhofer diffraction for particle sizing was introduced. Com pared with the well-known Chin–Shifrin inversion, it is an inversion of the form of integral transform and less sensitive to noise. Simulation results with noise-contaminated data were obtained and showed that the new inversion is better than the Chin–Shifrin inversion. Especially when the particle diameter was small, the new inversion still performed well, whereas the Chin–Shifrin inversion did not converge.
