Welcome To Dynamic Light Scattering

explanation of dynamic light scatteringMeritics warmly welcomes you to the Dynamic Light Scattering site, which we have set up to bring you news, views, background information and – above all – impartial, expert advice on this important subject.

As you know, for anyone involved in characterisation of materials, the choice of techniques and equipment is vast and can be quite confusing. Our aim is to clarify those choices and help you make the ideal selection for your situation.

Let’s begin by clarifying what dynamic light scattering is. Sometimes referred to as photon correlation spectroscopy, it is a technique often used for measuring the size – and size distribution – of small particles held in suspension, or polymers held in solution. It is also useful for investigating the behaviour of concentrated polymer solutions and other complex fluids. Continue reading Welcome To Dynamic Light Scattering
