Gérard Meunier develops a new concept of stability analysis of dispersions and registers on May 17, 1994, a patent entitled “Method and apparatus for analyzing the phases of a multi-phase mixture ». This is the first method which enables the measurement of opaque dispersions (emulsions, suspensions, foams), thanks to a backscattering detection system.
