Silver Emulsion - Particle Size Distribution Analysis

I've been working on formulating a home-made tabular grain type emulsion. I gave some of the emulsion to a friend, Stan Cassell at Chemoptix, who does microscopic analysis to see what his microscope could see. He prepared two slides of the emulsion by smearing diluted emulsion on a microscope slide. Using a Zeiss microscope with oil immersion optics, he took photos with a SPOT RT and processed them with Image Pro Plus software.

Below are links to a particle size distribution analysis of an emulsion I prepared in January, 2009.

Here's a link to download a pdf file of the analysis (11.2 MBytes).
