PARTICLE WORLD – Articles from the field of characterizing particles, powders and pores

Our annually published magazine PARTICLE WORLD contains numerous reports about challenges and results from characterizing of particles, powders and pores and showcases applications from industrial branches. We introduce new analytical methods and discuss new norms and operational procedures. The magazine can be downloaded in lower or high resolutions and can be used to either answer specific questions or serve as a base for scientific discussions with us.
