Benefits of using light scattering for measuring nanoparticles
The small size of nanoparticles confers novel optical, electronic, thermal and chemical properties on them. Measuring their size is therefore critical to understanding these materials.
Zeta potential is a critical parameter that determines nanoparticle stability or aggregation in a dispersion, so control of this parameter can have important implications on product performance.
Light scattering, especially dynamic light scattering, and electrophoretic light scattering are now the standard techniques for measuring the size and zeta potential of dispersed nanoparticles.
