A particle phaser was a type of ship-mounted phaser weapon.

The transport Kallisko was only equipped with low-level particle phasers. The weapons were no match for the Crystalline Entity and the whole crew of the ship perished. (TNG: "Silicon Avatar")

It is possible "particle phaser" is a synonym for any type of phaser, as phasers are nadion particle beam weapons.
