(optics)
A device that measures the loss in intensity of a light beam as it passes through a solution with particles large enough to scatter the light.

turbidimeter

An apparatus for the measurement of particle-size distribution of a finely divided material such as portland cement, based on successive measurements of the turbidity of a suspension in a fluid.
