Paper Abstract

We present a brief overview of using the effective refractive index of colloidal suspensions for characterizing nanoparticles. We focus our analysis on the so-called nanofluids consisting of nanoparticles suspended in a homogenous liquid matrix. Particular attention is paid to the role of the real part of the effective refractive index on sizing the nanoparticles. We then discuss possible ways to measure the real part of the effective refractive index of nanofluids and precautions needed.
