The total light scattering method for particle size measurement has a series of outstanding features, e.g. very simple instrumental arrangement, no serious requirements for its optical, photodetecting and electronic systems and its ease of use. Nevertheless, some problems still remain unsolved which should be dealt with to improve its further applications. An improvement has been made in this work. Comprehensive theoretical studies showed that this method is applicable to particle size analysis in the range 0.1-10 μm, i.e. for those particles whose diameter lies between the lower limit of the diffraction method and the upper limit of photon correlation spectroscopic (PCS) technique. Experimental studies with different monodisperse polystyrene latex spheres as standard reference material give good agreement with their nominal values.
