Dynamic Light Scattering 

written by Robert DeSerio

Scattering experiments can provide a wealth of detailed information about the structural and dynamical properties of matter. Dynamic light scattering, in particular, has important applications in particle and macromolecule sizing and brings in another important topic in physics: Brownian motion. We begin with a brief discussion of Brownian motion and dynamic light scattering before describing the apparatus and measurements.
