The classic light scattering techniques Dynamic and Static Light Scattering (DLS / SLS) are powerful tools enabling analysis of a great variety of materials such as nanoparticles, polymers, proteins or emulsions. Another powerful light scattering technique is Diffusing Wave Spectroscopy (DWS). It can be used to conduct microrheology measurements or particle sizing.
Often it is not easy to understand if a specific technique is suited for a sample and what one can learn from this. It might not even be clear how one needs to conduct a measurement to obtain the best result.
For this reason we have collected some application examples. All given examples used either our LS Spectrometer for DLS & SLS or our DWS RheoLab for DWS measurements. The scientific content of these examples is however valid independent of the instrument used.
