Every modern method to obtain a particle-size distribution is reviewed. These include sizing by flow, by detection of single particles, by light scattering, by acoustic signals, by adsorption, and by indirect methods. The various techniques are compared with respect to optimum ranges and reliability of results. A list of instrument makers is included.
