    Abstract

    The latest version of an optical, nonintrusive, imaging instrument for measuring drop sizes in sprays is briefly described. The range of drop sizes measurable is 6 to 1200 μm. The use of a laser allows the time exposure to be only 10 ns, which is suitable for fast-moving drops typically found with air-atomizing spray nozzles. References are given for a fuller description of the method and its advantages.
