Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS)


Anton Paar Litesizer 500
Particle size range
0.3 nm to 10 μm
Typical sample volume / concentration
1 mL / 0.1 %

Particle or droplet size distribution

DLS is a technique used to determine the size of particles dispersed in a liquid or the size of droplets in an emulsion. The particle or droplet size distribution is measured with an Anton Paar Litesizer 500. The dispersion or emulsion is first diluted with the liquid in which the particles are dispersed to the appropriate concentration before it is transferred to the cuvette for the measurement.
