Request: Experimental methodology in a core facility: Light scattering for preliminary experiments and final answers

Key Learning Objectives:

  • The fundamentals of light scattering theory, instrumentation and applications
  • How light scattering instruments are used for fast, preliminary experiments before more intensive studies are attempted
  • How often preliminary experiments provide all the answers needed for the scientific question
  • Advantages (and some disadvantages) of Wyatt’s DLS and MALS instruments in relation to other techniques such as AUC.
