An inversion technique was developed for determining the size distribution of randomly distributed tenuous scatterers from the forward scattering pattern. This technique is applicable for 1-D, 2-D, and 3-D scatterers. It does not require matrix inversion or a priori knowledge of functional forms of the size distribution, and it takes advantage of the fast Fourier transform and digital filtering techniques in spectral analysis. A typical error for 10% noise was within a few percent in the estimation of Gaussian size distribution using 1024-point FFT. The usefulness of this technique in practice was shown in experiments with latex spheres and bacteria.
