Abstract:
USPD employs ultrasonic backscatter for characterization of suspensions of particles as small as sub-10nm. Using a single transducer, it measures concentration, particle size and particle mechanical properties (e.g. compressibility). It can be incorporated into existing process equipment or used in batch mode in a stand-alone instrument.
