A new technique for reconstructing the particle size distribution from the data on the optical transfer function in the small-angle approximation of the radiation transfer theory is considered. The technique uses a representation of the Fourier transform of the aerosol scattering phase function in the form of a correlation function of particle shadow. The accuracy of the method is analyzed numerically based on the developed regularizing algorithm for the inverse problem solution. It is shown that the accuracy of the method is the same as of the solution for the inverse problem on angular distribution of multiply scattered plane wave.
