Online / Free Online Course


Description: This advanced course in “Particle Characterization” deals with methods and techniques for quantitatively and qualitatively evaluating properties of single particles and particulate assemblies. Emphasis is on the fine-particle size range, from micrometers to nanometers. Particle characteristics are linked to relevant applications in industry. Transport properties, adhesion/ cohesion phenomena and surface-particle removal mechanisms are dealt with in detail.
