Abstract

We present an inverse technique to determine particle-size distributions by training a layered perception neural network with optical backscattering measurements at three wavelengths. An advantage of this approach is that, even though the training may take a long time, once the neural network is trained the inverse problem of obtaining size distributions can be solved speedily and efficiently.
