Measurement of special nanoparticle structures by light scattering

Characterization of nanoparticles beyond spheres is a topic of growing importance. Philip Wyatt, founder and CEO of Wyatt Technology, presents an extension and simplification of the traditional Rayleigh-Gans theory behind multi-angle light scattering to address nanoparticles of varying structures, including rods, tubes, ellipsoids, rings and superellipsoids.
