Abstract

By using different weights to deal with the autocorrelation function data of every delay time period, the information utilization of dynamic light scattering can be obviously enhanced in the information-weighted constrained regularization inversion, but the denoising ability and the peak resolution under noise conditions for information-weighted inversion algorithm are still insufficient. On the basis of information weighting, we added a penalty term with the function of flatness constraints to the objective function of the regularization inversion, and performed the inversion of multiangle dynamic light scattering data, including the simulated data of bimodal distribution particles (466/915 nm, 316/470 nm) and trimodal distribution particles (324/601/871 nm), and the measured data of bimodal distribution particles (306/974 nm, 300/502 nm). The results of the inversion show that multiple-penalty-weighted regularization inversion can not only improve the utilization of the particle size information, but also effectively eliminate the false peaks and burrs in the inversed particle size distributions, and further improve the resolution of peaks in the noise conditions, and then improve the weighting effects of the information-weighted inversion.
