Paper Abstract

The principles of dynamic light scattering (DLS), applied to size analysis of submicron particles suspended in liquid, are reviewed. A comparison is made between two methods of inversion of the autocorrelation function data (cumulants analysis and Laplace transform inversion); choice of the appropriate method depends on the complexity of the underlying particle size distribution (PSD). Representative results are discussed and illustrate the current state-of-the-art of particle size analysis by DLS. Examples include polymer latexes, oil/water emulsions, surfactant micelles and small proteins.
