The principle of using optical correlation techniques for on-line bubble sizing is demonstrated in the paper. This method proves that in situ real-time measurements of the spatial bubble size distribution of a bubble screen or cloud can be performed. It involves looking at fringes produced by laser light scattered from individual bubbles. Employing special filters and an optical correlator to automate the identification of bubble sizes proved to be effective.
