This document shows a summary of the most relevant characterization techniques used to measure particle sizes and size distribution. These techniques are classified in three main approaches depending on the particle size distribution (PSD) analysis, which are ensemble, separation and counting methods. Each of the methods explained in the present document are based on different physical principles and present their own advantages and limitations. Only few of the techniques reviewed are valid for online/inline analysis.
