Annotation Different kinds of fiber optic sensors (FOS) for nanoparticle size measurements during their growth in chemical reactors are discussed. It was shown that in reactor without mixing a single-mode FOS can be applied for real-time size measurements, and in the presence of turbulence (in reactor with active mixing) capillary FOS should be preferred.
