What are the factors that affect resolution?


There are many factors affecting the resolution of a laser diffraction particle size analyzer:


The number of photodetectors

In the appropriate range, the more the number of photodetectors spaced logarithmically, the higher the resolution.


Inverse algorithm

A good inverse algorithm leads to a higher resolution.


Distribution mode

Measurement result based on the multipeak mode has a higher resolution than that based on the single peak model. 


Fourier lens

Fourier lens with less aberration leads to a higher resolution.
