Report on the state-of-the-art review

This deliverable, leaded by University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), is part of the work package 1 (WP1) – Definition of the nano-monitoring technologies requirements.
This deliverable discusses the state-of-the-art measurement techniques in the context of particle sizing and industrial application. Inline and offline techniques are shortly discussed, with a focus on the inline applicability of the considered techniques. In this discussion the terms inline, online and atline need to be discriminated. Inline monitoring will happen directly inside the process, at best faster than observable process changes. Online analysers are connected to the process (e.g. in a bypass) and ideally have a similar time resolution like inline analysers. Atline devices are separated but close to the process, while offline analysis happens spatially and timely separated.
